Microsoft goes open source with Gadgeteer electronics

[From the article: We can file this one – at a push – under open source
engineering, even if – given this involves Microsoft – no Linux is involved.
The Redmond giant has has announced
the official launch of Gadgeteer,
a set of electronic parts designed to be plugged together to build prototypes
or working electronic devices. Remote controlled cars and cameras are given as
possible examples. It is aimed squarely at “hobbyists, electronic
enthusiasts and educators” and Microsoft says it does not require any
specialist electronics knowledge or soldering. The idea is to make it simple
for anyone to quickly design and build their own devices.—Might be a good fit
for a lab. Jim]
