Unconference Session 3: Linking up projects

Talked a lot about LabThings and how it has lots of potential - though Thing Description is less well supported than e.g. OpenAPI.

Extensions for the microsope server are a good way to add functionality, particularly for adding in new little bits of hardware (buttons, LEDs, etc.). New architecture is coming that should make these easier to share and install.

Modifications to the hardware - hack saws are often much easier than doing it in OpenSCAD - are there intermediate ways, like modifying the STLs. How do we share things that are done like this, i.e. Not fully parametric OpenSCAD that can be a merge request…

Adapters between different hardware systems are great; could we have OFM-Lego-Lego-UC2? Linking up is really handy
