Come learn about “future-proof” open hardware and emerging directions in community networking

Join us on Monday, 24 October, at 4pm as Luka Mustafa, founder of the Koruza Project, explains and demonstrates their optical networking technology.

Koruza is the first open source wireless optical communication system for urban environments, connecting locations at up to 150 meter distances, and empowering networks with 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps throughputs, unaffected by radio spectrum saturation, to provide last-mile networking without the need for fiber installation.

Luka will also explain GoodEnoughCNC, their open source baseline manufacturing solution for prototyping and small series production. GoodEnoughCNC’s philosophy is to offer effective digital manufacturing tools that are good enough for the majority of applications an average maker needs. The system is open source, using standard components and with full documentation available online.

Luka himself is a Slovenian-based Shuttleworth Foundation Fellow, working full-time on Koruza development at the Institute IRNAS Rače in Slovenia, which he founded in 2014. He is also a PhD student at University College London. He leads a multidisciplinary team developing open systems ranging from CNC machines to electronics and fibre optic systems, promotes and deploys open wireless networks in the WLAN Slovenia project, and manages national and international wireless backbones.

Join Luka in SF Tech Center on 24 October at 4pm to learn more about affordable and open manufacturing and networking, Koruza and other projects.
