Invention, Intellectual Property and Business Models
For this week's assignment we are supposed to state our plans for the future of our final projects and the dissemination of our findings.
The idea of machines making machines and eventually Fablabs replicating themselves is absolutely fascinating. I think this can really make a huge difference in the world of digital fabrication and rapid prototyping.
All of this can only be possible because of the contributions of makers and people of the Fablabs community. Releasing projects as open source is a great way of development because people don't just use them, they add to them, modify to them and make them better.
That's why I plan to release my project as an open source project for interested people to be able to replicate it. I think of this as a small contribution towards achieving Fablabs making Fablabs and also a way of giving a payback to the Community and those who helped me make it posiible
