Open Source Hardware (OSHW) is just one more component of the ever growing 'open source' movement. The following are links to selected OSHW organizations, activities, and solutions:
Open source hardware gives people the 'freedom' to control their technology while sharing knowledge and encouraging commerce through the open exchange of designs.

Open Source Hardware (OSHW) is a term for tangible artifacts -- machines, devices, or other physical things -- whose design has been released to the public in such a way that anyone can make, modify, distribute, and use those things.  See http://freedomdefined.org/OSHW

TEDx - Open Source Hardware

Open source hardware design (e.g. mechanical drawings, schematics, bill of materials) are all released in accordance with generally accepted open source practices. Ideally, open source hardware uses readily-available components and materials, standard processes, open infrastructure, unrestricted content, and open-source design tools to maximize the ability of individuals to make and use hardware.  - See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_hardware
