Marcin Jakubowski: Open-sourced blueprints for civilization

Fantastic and inspiring TED Talk. Let’s hope patents don’t kill this (see my Pharmaceutical “Printers” and Patents; The IP War on 3D Printing Begins). (h/t Manuel Lora)

http://www.ted.com Using wikis and digital fabrication tools, TED Fellow Marcin Jakubowski is open-sourcing the blueprints for 50 farm machines, allowing anyone to build their own tractor or harvester from scratch. And that’s only the first step in a project to write an instruction set for an entire self-sustaining village (starting cost: $10,000).
