Open Hardware Observatory

From OHO - search engine for sustainable open hardware projects


An important obstacle for the spread of Open Hardware is that many good projects are unknown or difficult to find on the web. For this reason OHO has developed the most comprehensive search engine for do-it-yourself and open hardware projects to date:


OHO would like to help the many individual open hardware projects to network more closely, use common standards and thus achieve a higher social and economic relevance. For this purpose we cooperate with different organizations:
