Open source robot vacuum, or home-assistant robots in general. All the options available out there are just a bunch of proprietary, patented, cloud-controlled, privacy-invading buckets running on rented software.

A website where people can propose projects that they would like to see exist, and also vote for proposals of other people.

That way we would get a good insight about what people are most interested in, and maybe the proposals with most interest would probably become actual projects.

Or not a website, just make a Lenny community for start

is that something similar to ZeroNet? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZeroNet | https://zeronet.io/)

yeah, except without artificial scarcity

There’s something called GNUnet, by the FSF obviously

Honestly, that’s more complicated than I even need, though it could be cool. A centralized site using whatever vichan fork and actually good rules / active mods would be incredible.

Yeah, agreed.

BTW, in my experience, 4chan is not all trash. If you stay away from the bigger boards, your experience won’t be that bad. But YMMV.

Some project related to free and open source cars. I love driving, and appreciate technologies like ABS, ESC, and TCS, but they always seem to come on cars that have a cell modem. I would love an enthusiast style car that runs only FOSS

A service like letterboxd, myanimelist, and goodreads, that unifies all these mediums and more, into one single media tracking site with individual user profiles and off that, on the side, some social-networking. As of today, there’s no site for tracking ALL media, rather only many sites focused on a single medium, each with ad-hoc databases and different UI:

  • Film (IMDB, letterboxd)
  • Anime (myanimelist, anilist, kitsu)
  • Games (mobygames, glitchwave?)
  • Literature (goodreads, bookwyrm (federated!)
  • Music (rateyourmusic, …)

If I’d just like to keep track of media I consume I can just keep one big offline spreadsheet, but what I enjoy of these services is the ability to make friends with similar tastes and being introduced to amazing art through personalized recommendations, that I otherwise would’ve never known about.

Apart of being fragmented, most of the aforementioned available media tracking services sell user’s data and are proprietary. I guess I’d like to see something like bookwyrm, but with a larger scope than just books. Maybe integration with Wikidata is the only viable solution for the herculean scope of cataloguing every media release that ever existed. Not sure how this would turn out in practice, but Wikidata could benefit too, from having legions of people adding info on their favorite obscure shows.

A fast and not too memory hungry selfhosted, decentralised chat (Matrix) client, with support for E2E-encryption and voice chat (Mumble?) integration.

Bonus points if it could have different types of “chat” rooms with different user interfaces, such as ones for “ephemeral” content, such as general banter and memes. These could let their content expire after a certain time and have typing indicators and so on.

An other type of room could have a more of a forum style interface, which encourages “slow” chat with more lengthy and content-rich posts. It could remove typing indicators and not automatically display new messages to encourage people writing their thoughts out in one message, instead of feeling pressured to send their messages as quickly as possible.

Basically an all in one application for communities but FLOSS. I don’t necessarily think an all-in-one community application is needed, but Discord proves that’s what people seem to want.

A FOSS Music app that’s as good as Musicolet. I got too used to its queue system that now I can’t use any other music app that does it the more “traditional” way. Also multi-select, menus, options and search are just too well done in this app. Literally the best IMO.

The fact that it does so much and is still ad-free and mostly donation-based (iirc) also always makes me reconsider if going full-FOSS is actually worth it at all. It just feels like it was built with so much care… Similar to other non-FOSS apps I used to use.

I guess not everything that’s proprietary sucks

Ever tried emby? Hits in the good spot. it’s the open-source alternative to spotify. understandably some features of their google play app are subscription only. It isn’t cheap maintaining apps in the commercial eco-system.

Much better to recommend Jellyfin instead of Emby.

Navidrome is also an excellent music server that’s very fast and lightweight with great support from multiple mobile apps

A massive news aggregator that uses AI to be able to categorize news from all around the world in a way that allows one to filter through news articles with specific biases. This would make it easier to get a more balanced picture of world events, and would be an excellent research tool to study propaganda.

Duolingo but it’s maths.

Like, it teaches you all of maths from stuff as simple as small addition all the way up to complicated things like calculus and integration. It would have problem generators that keep feeding you practice questions until you can do it all from heart.

I’d call the app “Euler”, after the prolific mathematician.

@Zalamander

Do you know about Project Euler? https://projecteuler.net/

It contains a mixture of math and programming problems, and a similar name to the one you propose! :-)

@Ninjabread

Khan Academy has something similar in their iPad app.

@ster

This would be fantastic, although as a maths student myself I would want a mix of human-written and automatically-generated problems (since automatic ones are severely limited in scope and routine problems are rarely done in any quantity at high level).

If it also integrated with (an) Interactive Theorem Prover(s) to allow leaners to write proofs which are computer-checked that would be incredible.

I’ve actually been meaning to start this project myself for around 2 years but the barrier for me is web development, I’m a competent Python programmer so I reckon I have a chance with the backend but I have literally 0 ability in UI/frontend design and frontend development.

If anyone considers themselves mildy competent (post-beginner) level at frontend web development and wants to chat about this on matrix I’m all ears.

I’d like to see an open source foundation that designs 3D printable tablet cases, and publishes the files, along with instructions for building open source tablets based off of single board computers (ie Raspberry Pi, Pine, etc) and available existing components (ie touch screens, batteries, etc)—similar to what Zynthian.org has done for musical devices.

The technology you need for this is coming to a Fediverse near you :D

Christopher Lemmer Webber, activitypub spec co-author has plans to create Fantasary as part of Spritely Project. It is a proof-of-concept, and based on this technology all kinds of games you can imagine come within reach of any fedi developer.

Matrix sorta does everything you said minus the TOR afaik. It’s definitely decentralized, federated, E2EE, and has voice/video chat. The 2FA is more of a verification but it’s there (not TOTP/HOTP though). You can also route the app through TOR I’d imagine!

XMPP cover most of it, plus Tor.
