osloom: an open source jacquare loom ()

OSLOOM(short for OPEN SOURCE LOOM) is a project aimed at creating an open source electromechanical thread-controlled floor loom that will be computer controlled.

OSLOOM would have an impact on (but not limited to) the following communities/sectors: ● artists ● DIY/makers ● studio weavers ● educational ● institutions (large and small) ● textile designers ● developing countries

OSLOOM.org will be the main repository for the OSLOOM. Once research & development creates the first bug-free prototype OSLOOM the loom plans + documentation (hardware + software) would all be placed online on a wiki for easy access. The website will become a hub for the OSLOOM project but also for other types of DIY/OS looms that anyone can build.
