How Open Hardware will Take Over the World

Gadgets. We all own one (or a hundred). Nathan Seidel just happens to have made gadgets and their parts his life's work. As the founder of SparkFun Electronics, he took the TEDxBoulder stage this year to share why Open Hardware will change the gadgets of the future. Join Nathan as he guides you through the world of patents, how long it really takes copycat products to appear in the marketplace, and show you how sharing can truly build profitable, growing companies. Funny — he just might know a thing or two about that. Makers, gadgeteers, and anyone interested in what the future of technology and business looks like — you'll all love Nathan's talk.
