Submission + - Hardware is now open (sourced) for business (cnbc.com)

coop0030 writes: An article out of CNBC discusses the state of open source hardware based businesses. "Few hardware companies would dream of giving up their design secrets, but for a growing niche of entrepreneurs, doing just that is a pillar of their business. The open-source hardware movement is migrating from the garage to the marketplace. Companies that follow an open-source philosophy make their physical designs and software code available to the public. By doing so, these companies engage a wave of makers, hobbyists and designers who don't just want to buy products, but have a hand in developing them."
