We Believe in Open Source

The Helios4 was from the start a project by community for the community.

Open source software

Because simply this project wouldn't even exist without all the amazing projects out there, any of our software contribution will of course be published on our Github.

open source hardware

We hope people will adopt our platform and make it their own therefore all hardware details along with schematics will be available on our Wiki page.
