Dear all,

I am happy to introduce the development of a wireless optical network
system KORUZA.

KORUZA is an innovative open-source open-hardware wireless
communication system, employing a new low-cost approach to designing
free-space optical network systems, enabling building-to-building
connectivity with a highly collimated light beam at a capacity of 1
Gbps (1000 Mbps) at distances up to 100 m. It is designed to be
suitable for home as well as professional users, enabling organic
bottom-up growth of networks by eliminating the need for wired fiber
connections and associated high installation costs. The simplicity of
use, low-cost and compact size allow the system to be deployed in any

Feel free to see a more detailed description of the project with nice
diagrams at:

As well as some details about the current state of the prototype system:

I have written a scientific paper on the topic: Reintroducing
Free-Space Optical Technology to Community Wireless Networks, which is
available on (unfortunately behind a paywall):

The paper will hopefully be presented to wider audience on AMCIS2013
conference in Chicago this August, but am at the moment lacking
sufficient travel funding to attending it. You are most kindly invited
to forward the project to any organisation that would be able to
support me.

KORUZA is under active development, but at the moment with my personal
resources in Slovenia. The next months are going to be dedicated to
evolve the prototype into a product suitable for the everyone to use
and I am looking forward to presenting it in Berlin in October,
hopefully along with a crowd-funding campaign for the first series. A
lot of work, time and resources are required for the project to grow
up sufficiently to support itself. I am appealing to you for help in
obtaining a grant, by puting me in touch with suitable organisations
or individuals, that will enable the project to continue and meet the
above described goals.

Kind regards,
