About the Event

The Open Hardware Summit is the annual conference organized by the Open Source Hardware Association a 501(c)(3) not for profit charity. It is the world’s first comprehensive conference on open hardware; a venue and community in which we discuss and draw attention to the rapidly growing Open Source Hardware movement.

Speakers include world renowned leaders from industry, academia, the arts and maker community. Talks cover a wide range of subjects from electronics, mechanics to related fields such as digital fabrication, fashion technology, self-quantification devices, and IP law. As a microcosm of the Open Source Hardware community, the Summit provides an annual friendly forum for the community.

Featured Speakers

Ayah Bdeir

Founder and CEO at littleBits
Ayah Bdeir is an engineer and social activist. She is the inventor of littleBits, the electronic building block that has transformed STEM education for millions of kids around the world.

For over a decade, Bdeir’s work has centered around empowering everyone to be an inventor — by modularizing and democratizing electronics, by pioneering new ways of learning through play, and by reimagining the relationship between technology and creativity. Bdeir has been particularly focused on empowering underrepresented communities with the tools to become tomorrow’s changemakers.

In 2009 Bdeir co-founded the Open Hardware Summit and helped shape the principles by which Open Source is applied to hardware.

In 2011, Bdeir founded littleBits Electronics Inc., and raised over $100 million from prominent investors in Silicon Valley and New York. The company was acquired by Sphero in 2019 and together have become a leader in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) education. Today, more than 20 million “Bits” are in the hands of kids, teachers, artists… in over 70 countries. And littleBits has won over 150 awards including Toy of the Year.

In 2019, when a revolution broke out in Lebanon, Bdeir’s home country, she went back to Beirut and co-founded a platform to help political and civic activists use technology to further democracy. The platform, called Daleel Thawra (Eng: Directory to the Revolution) reaches over 35,000 people in Lebanon and continues to grow.
