Happy old year! We are happy to announce that we acquired a first image in October 2018 with our open source Desktop MR system. We packed our magnet into the car in Berlin, drove down some 800km to LUMC in Leiden Netherlands, did a bit of magic and voila. This is a great success and it was a lot of fun! In the meanwhile the fantastic team at LUMC and TU Delft in collaboration with Penn State and Mbarara University, Uganda and the PTB Berlin constructed a bigger (but cheap and easy to build magnet) and the first images look fantastic. This is the power of collaboration. So watch out for 2019 and happy new open source year to all!
