Luka Mustafa
Luka Mustafa is a Shuttleworth Foundation Fellow, working full-time on wireless optical system KORUZA development at Institute IRNAS RaËe in Slovenia that he founded in 2014, as well as being a PhD student at University College London. He leads a multidisciplinary team developing open systems ranging from CNC machines to electronics and fibre optic systems, promotes and deploys open wireless networks in wlan slovenia project and manages national and international wireless backbones.

Luka Mustafa will speak on AFFORDABLE NETWORKING AND MANUFACTURING: 1 Gbps / 10 Gbps wireless optical system KORUZA and GoodEnoughCNC machines. KORUZA is low cost, open source and open hardware, wireless optical system, making the free space optical (FSO) technology available to masses and providing an alternative to Wi-Fi networks and to digging up the road and laying fiber in last-mile applications. KORUZA gigabit optical link leverages off-the-shelf parts and a number of simple mechanical solutions to point a collimated optical beam at a 100m distant point. Several generations of prototypes, each improving the design simplicity, being more 3D printable and accounting for assembly parts imperfections, will be demonstrated through a number of examples. Open hardware GoodEnoughCNC machines focus on simplest construction and affordable cost for maximum reproducibility anywhere around the globe. Belt driven GoodEnoughCNC hybrid design rely on stock steel elements that can be commonly found almost anywhere and a small set of generally available and 3D printed parts to create a cost-effective machine every hackspace could afford. Troublemaker V2 3D printer extends toolset by providing a 30 x 30 x 30 cm build volume at an affordable cost and construction without custom parts. Join us for demonstration of the machines in action and for the presentation of interdisciplinary open hardware development and making.

At Institute IRNAS we strive to apply the vast scientific knowledge to everyday reality by creating effective and affordable systems. We believe in an open-source world and sharing. We aim to empower the world with technologies that improve lives, let that be an advanced communication system or a simple everyday utensil. We are non-profit, rewarding the ones that create, always exploring new projects and ideas. All our work is published under open-source open-hardware licenses.
