Many hacks using Free Software and a broad range of hardware like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Cubieboards… and creating OpenHardware, and maybe even some soldering to do!

Paul Kocialkowski , Georges Khaznadar
Paul Kocialkowski started using free software in 2008 and soon gained interest in software freedom, with a particular emphasis on running fully free systems. After an unfortunate soldering accident on his Openmoko FreeRunner board, he decided to try out Replicant, the fully free Android version. Starting as a user of the system, he gradually became the main developer of the project and has been holding that position for more than two years now. He is also in charge of maintaining the single board computers and plug computers comparisons from the software freedom perspective on the Free Software Foundation’s website.
