Arduino Documentary: Open Source Hardware is Here

Open Source, it’s not just for soft­ware. It’s for hard­ware too. The new film, Arduino: The Doc­u­men­tary, revis­its a project launched in the Ital­ian town of Ivrea back in 2005. The chal­lenge? To devel­op cheap, easy-to-use elec­tron­ics com­po­nents for design stu­dents. (You can get into the tech­ni­cal side of things here.) The mes­sage? sum­ma­rizes it well: “we are about to see an explo­sion of hard­ware devices that come from bed­room tin­ker­ers and stu­dent projects.” Note: A Span­ish ver­sion of the film is avail­able here, and they’re all released under a Cre­ative Com­mons license.

Arduino: The Doc­u­men­tary will be added to our col­lec­tion, 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Clas­sics, Indies, Noir, West­erns, Doc­u­men­taries & More
