If you enjoy building small projects using electronics you are sure to be interested in a new project which started its journey over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website called HackEDA.
The HackEDA project consists of a number of reusable-sized pieces of electronic designs, that allows you to create your own custom electronic boards using a set of standard modules.Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the HackEDA project and see it in action.
“Think of it as a mashup tool for electronics. Now the next time inspiration strikes, there’s that much less between you and the hardware you need to make it a reality. There are many circuit designs already on the internet, but they can be difficult to use for a host of reasons. It can be hard to find what you need. They come in varying file formats, some more reusable than others (.pdf, anyone…? …no? …bmp?).
Many are incomplete, leaving out part numbers, using components that aren’t available any more, or don’t include good documentation. There may not be a way to give feedback or directly edit the design for the benefit of others. And even if all that weren’t the case, hooking a bunch of circuits together is still an error prone process that can take a while to get right.”
The HackEDA project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think HackEDA is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help HackEDA become a reality.
