This project is intended to be a base for other projects that needs a module to continuously scan and store high resolution images of a specimen.
There are many applications of this project. The most interesting one of them for me is the development of open-source lab equipments.
I went to http://choosealicense.com/ to understand more about the differences between available licenses.
I can't guarantee that I will be able to maintain this project completely an I want others to help me in this.
So, I considered the GNU GPLv3 license , which will allow others to contribute to the project, use it as a base for their projects and create other iterations of the project according to their needs without having to worry about intellectual property.
Then I reviewed the Fab license and found it much simpler and and as this project is supposed to be replicatable in Fab Labs so I think this will be better for this project.
I watched the recitation done by Bio-Academy faculty and their lecture about (Open) Hardware for Engineering Biology and thought that this might be a good opportunity to use this project as a platform for students in this assignments or their final projects.
The project source files will be posted on Fabacademy's Gitlab at:
First I thought about using Github but found that Gitlab has some free features that would be helpful in this project like:
Which can be useful in limiting the access to the Fab Lab network which will create a better eco-system for the project's growth.
This will help create a concentrated community for the project and all other projects using it.
