Then you should license your software under the GPLv3 license. This allows everyone to use it, but prevents someone from putting it in a commercial product and restricting it's use in some way.

A Quick Guide to GPLv3 - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF)

I'm not sure if there's a similar way to keep the hardware design open and free.

Keep up the great work.
