Humane Informatics is a one-man project in the field of Information and communication technologies for development led by Braddock Gaskill. As of October 2010 the project introduced two open-source hardware devices - the Humane Reader and the Humane PC. Both devices are based on Arduino design.

Humane Reader

The Humane Reader is a low-cost electronic device with TV-out that can hold a five thousand book library (e.g. offline Wikipedia compilations) on a microSD card. The reader could be produced in quantity for about $20 per unit.[1][2][3]

Humane PC

The Humane PC is an extended version of the Humane Reader - it has an extra micro-USB port and infrared port.[2][3][4]
