In the Next Industrial Revolution, Atoms Are the New Bits

,----[ Quote ]
| The door of a dry-cleaner-size storefront in 
| an industrial park in Wareham, Massachusetts, 
| an hour south of Boston, might not look like a 
| portal to the future of American 
| manufacturing, but it is. This is the 
| headquarters of Local Motors, the first open 
| source car company to reach production. Step 
| inside and the office reveals itself as a 
| mind-blowing example of the power of micro-
| factories.

The Replicator, No Longer a Star Trek Dream

,----[ Quote ]
| Open-sourcing is also helping further the 
| development of the RepRap project. Bowyer 
| explained that he wanted a powerful technology 
| like the RepRap to be available to everyone, 
| so he made it free. A list of materials needed 
| for a RepRap and the instructions on how to 
| put it together are all available on the 
| RepRap website.

RepRap, the replicating machine: The Free and Open Source Factory on the Desktop?

,----[ Quote ]
| RepRap (replicating Rapid-prototyper) is a 3D
| printer and it is impeccably free and open
| source under both the GPL and the Creative
| Commons Licence. It’s early days but the
| implications and the promise are potentially
| enormous in their own right — but the fact
| that it is resolutely not proprietary is what
| caught my attention.
