      Vishal T. Mishra
Abstract: The utilization of the computer and web technology has given rise to many innovations in the world community including education. Free Open Source Software (FOSS) are one of these innovations. The business community have used the advantages of FOSS to benefit their institutions. Compared with Proprietary (Closed Source), FOSS proves to be lot better. Most of the Open-source software is free to use, easy to distribute and modify. It has lower costs, and in most cases this is only a fraction of the cost of their proprietary counterparts and thus can be counted as its advantage. This paper gives a brief description about open source hardware and open source software. Android Wallet and Eye Stick Navigation System are two projects based on them. A brief summary of them is given in this paper.
