OpenCircuits is a wiki to assist electrical or computer projects by providing project pages that are continously updated. Rather than having to read long discussion threads. That way you can get updated quickly the latest information.
Here you can setup pages about original research, practical howto's, or an idea you have in electrical areas that doesn't have to be notable in a strict sense.
You can freely assume other readers have technical proficiency
Feel free to use wikipedia.org as a starting place or reference. But details on history, who, when and trivia belongs more on wikipedia. Thus, try to avoid making this a wikipedia mirror, but rather a complement to wikipedia.
This place is built around the idea that sharing is better and we appreciate projects that allow others to reproduce or modify the projects here without restrictions. Please also understand that manufacturing comes with costs as most physical objects.
Is this a good wiki to talk about disassembling commercially-available electronics, and modding them to add just one more feature? For example, "iPhone disassembly" or "A photo-tutorial on adding RAM to a Model 100"? And discussing O'Reilly "PSP Hacks: Tips & Tools for Your Mobile Gaming and Entertainment Handheld"? Or is there a better wiki elsewhere? --188.8.131.52 12:52, 10 March 2008 (PDT)
russ_hensel This sounds more like opening circuits than open circuits. That said it is close enough for me. I would recommend that we keep this seperate from the open circuits so that readers do not get confused: that is it should have its own topic page and not be mixed in with current topics. What to others think?
I concur. I think hacking preexisting electronics can play an integral role. --Wackyvorlon 14:47, 19 May 2008 (PDT)
Does anyone know a wiki which is especially for disassembling/ reverse-engineering of existing hardware? --184.108.40.206 22:28, 2 July 2011 (UTC)
