Ethics and Laws

Digital DIY makes it much easier for everybody to produce physical objects of all kinds. Such a capability brings considerable challenges to our current ethical and legal systems, and to our very idea of what is (or should be) right or wrong: what happens when virtually everybody can copy objects of design, self-produce spare parts for products she already owns, or manufacture dangerous ones?

Open Source Ecology

Open Source Blueprints for Civilization. Build Yourself.

We’re developing open source industrial machines that can be made for a fraction of commercial costs, and sharing our designs online for free. The goal of Open Source Ecology is to create an open source economy – an efficient economy which increases innovation by open collaboration.
