It's been quiet for a while, so I wanted to give people an update. OpenGen itself is currently not being developed, because I have put it on hold while I work on another project which will be critical to its functionality- the BTI framework. Since OpenGen will generally be pretty small, the interface will be very limiting; a 1602 LCD won't be able to display all the information necessary and it would require a more processing power and mucking around with cutouts (I don't like cutting out display windows) to add a graphic LCD. Instead, OpenGen will be controllable over Bluetooth by a phone, tablet or dedicated BTI interface. This will allow a simpler and easier flow of operation.

More info to come!
