The open source vehicle framework that goes from box to vroom in one hour
Joining in on the open source movement, OSVehicle has released the blueprints and plans for its vehicle framework, Tabby. Also referred to as the “Arduino for mobility,” OSVehicle puts vehicle-building tools into makers’ hands, promoting a community devoted to the design and build of the framework in the OSV forum.
Want to take it out for a spin? 3D prints for a road-legal kit to build on the original framework also exists: UrbanTabby CAD files are available for download and discussion.
These DIY cars can integrate hybrid or electric engines, and can be assembled in under one hour. Parts-kits are available for pre-order, and at the attractive price of about $4500, the world’s first mass produced universal chassis will surely roll through a city near you very soon.
