Wireless optical communications have become a significant research topic in the past years and are gaining significance for industrial use. We have launched the workshop focused on experimental construction and testing of wireless optical systems to empower participants in their research by creating open source open hardware wireless optical system KORUZA to gain necessary skills in equipment construction.
With this testbed platform you can effectively create operational links by modifying only the components of your interest. During a week long workshop we will take you step-by-step through assembly of KORUZA, teach you basics of 3D modeling and modification of the assembly for your own purposes and conclude with atmospheric attenuation testing in our 50 m long fog tunnel, characterizing built devices in fog and smoke.
Event will be held in Maribor, Slovenia between 21st and 25th November 2016 for up to 5 participants. The cost per participant, including all parts required to assemble one fully operational KORUZA to take home is 2000EUR, excluding any accommodation and travel costs.

You can find us at this year's European edition of Maker Faire in Rome, which is going to happen between 14th and 16th of October in Rome, Italy. We'll be there presenting Koruza and GoodEnoughCNC. We'll also hold a Hybrid CNC workshop as well as a talk presenting how can open source and good enough digital manufacturing solutions transform the way we make stuff and how we can use them for good.
At Ars Electronica 2016, Luka and Boštjan are going to present the work of our institute in two parts: with an ad hoc mini fab&sciencelab, where visitors can test and play with the machines, produce their own models, DIY research equipment or do simple experiments and with an interactive installment of KORUZA, where visitors will be able to witness first hand how optical communication works, its advantages and potentials for future networking.
Luka will be presenting scientific article with the title FSO Artificial Low-cost Fog Attenuation Experiment, he prepared together with Eva, at International Symposium on Communication Systems, Networks and Digital Signal Processing on the second day of the event, Thursday, 21st July.
Join us for the presentation of KORUZA wireless optical system and GoodEnoughCNC machines at MakersLab - Paralelní Polis on Tuesday, 19th July, starting at 6pm. We'll also set up our demo station, where you'll be able to see GoodEnoughCNC and KORUZA in action. Find the details about this event on this link.
We’ll be exhibiting and presenting our open hardware projects, Koruza and GoodEnoughCNC, at Maker Pro section and Luka will participate at Make it as a Pro panel, curated by Wevolver and Fab City Research Laboratory on Tuesday, 21st June, at 10am. On 22nd June we are holding a hands on session - GoodEnoughCNC workshop. Find out more about this event on our blog.

Of course, we'll also set up our demo station, where you'll be able to see GoodEnoughCNC and KORUZA in action.
Luka will hold a presentation on our affordable manufacturing and networking systems and everything in between during Self-replicate session at Fabelgrade, on Sunday at 10am. During the whole event, we'll also have a demo station set up, so you're invited to stop by and try the machines out.
You're invited to join the presentation of our affordable manufacturing and networking systems: KORUZA wireless optical system and GoodEnoughCNC machines at Fablab München on Sunday, 6th March at 10am.
Luka is among the participants of GOSH!2016, Gathering for Open Science Hardware where active developers, users and thinkers in the open science hardware space complemented by other experts will meet with the aim to learn and build together, scoping the potential of the open science hardware field. Additionally, they'll be planning their way to help build a coherent, self-organising community to raise its profile and drive change within institutions to increase uptake and opportunities.
We will hold a presentation of our affordable manufacturing and networking solutions on the community night event in Milan's makerspace Wemake. You're kindly invited to join us if you are somewhere close.

A week long workshop held at Institute IRNAS Rače in Slovenia will focus on educating the participants on the detailed operation of wireless optical system KORUZA, guide them though step-by-step assembly of the system, calibration and testing on our test range. Empowered with knowledge and experience participants will be be able to use KORUZA assembly kits to construct and calibrate more units independently as well as design modification for scientific applications. Subject to availability, testing of the system in the 50m long FSO testing tunnel currently under construction.
Event will be held in Maribor, Slovenia periodically, the first dates available are 23rd to 27th November 2015 for up to 5 participants. The cost per participant, including all parts required to assemble one fully operational KORUZA to take home is 2000EUR, excluding any accommodation and travel costs.
Applications can be made by mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find more about the KORUZA system online on our web page. If you have any additional question or require more information feel free to contact us.
We will be attending the Hackaday SuperCon in San Francisco, November 14th and 15th, one of the biggest hardware conferences. Find Luka and KORUZA amongst participants if you want to find out more or even test the KORUZA system.
We will be visiting Internet Archive open lunch on 13th of November in San Francisco. If you want to find out more about KORUZA and our other projects stop by.
We will hold a presentation of the KORUZA wireless optical system at Sudo Room hackerspace, Oakland, California. You are invited to join the presentation if you are in the area and want to find out more about KORUZA open source open-hardware system.
Lunch hour talk at the BID seminar at Berkeley on the topic: Design for imperfect manufacturing and challenges of making wireless optical system KORUZA.
