I can think of some other hardware-related projects that *might* be interesting (camera triggering controllers, for example) -- although, that _could_ grow fast enough to overrun us with Open Hardware stuff, since it's such a hot commodity at the moment.
> I think in all three of these cases, it would help to have a note from the organizers/hosts in order to make it clear we're not asking without permission. Maybe I'm just more concerned about EditShare, since they have had some near-arguments about their open source strategy on the discussion forum.
Can you give an example of the kind of note you would need?
It could be good to have something from Medialab Prado (a solid open hardware/3D printing context, http://medialab-prado.es/search?q=3D), it is best to write to Monica directly, she's our local coordinator: Monica Cachafeiro <monica at medialab-prado.es>
