Interesting interview with Jonah Peretti, Director of R&D at Eyebeam, last statement looks promising! “We recently finished construction and are in the process of outfitting the lab with electronics benches, a 3D printer, a laser cutter, and workstations for hackers, designers, and artists. The lab will be dedicated to public domain R&D — our code will be under GPL, our media will be under Creative Commons, and we will publish DIY instructions for hardware projects”. Link.
