I have been developing (but haven't published yet) an open source hardware specification with heavy emphasis on modularity and hackability. It is very close to what the Apertus camera. I'd like to help in the development of the physical elements of the camera.
I have been trained as an architect but my real interest is engineering. I have some machining experience with lathes mills and plasma cutters, design of mechanisms and design for modularity, also amateur knowledge of electronics.
