A weblog about DIY and open source hardware.

The main theme of the Capacitor weblog was open hardware, opening up machines, building from scratch, prototyping with open platforms and tinkering. Through amongst others interviews with developers, bricoleurs, engineers and hobbyists Capacitor dipped its toe into the water of the open hardware sea which was out there.
