    I wanted to hear what you think of open source hardware, beyond microcontrollers, technology in general.
    Devices, plants, engines, renewalbe energy ?
    I feel there is a huge potential in enabling so many people round the world to build the things of their daily and professional needs largely by themselves. This could be swift, and have a serious impact in reducing transport efforts and thereby save a lot of CO2. It would allow people to apply their educations and open new opportunities to them. The world might get more efficient in many basic supply issues, more resilient and less centralized, which one might argue, would benefit democratic structures.

    Who likes the idea to change the world by generating open and benign technologies?

    Having an open sources drawing of an engine won’t help much if you are missing the machines and knowledge to built it.
