Whoa! Open Source Wireless Remotes for Flash Photography?!

Having bought 13 PocketWizards Plus II remotes it's very interesting to hear there is now discussion about the possibility of creating an open source design of wireless remotes over at Strobist.

The plan would be to offer a design and maybe kits with a printed circuit board and parts that you solder.

Real PocketWizard wireless remotes are used to fire remote flashes or strobes up to 1600 feet away. Photography without them is a pain in the neck and the mark between a professional and an amateur.

I don't have the know how to contribute anything to the project and barely can solder anything without making a mess but this indeed sounds cool!

As someone who can't afford PWs and doesn't have the confidence to hack my existing GI/eBay wireless triggers, I'd definatly be interested in a Strobist alternative...
