As I read the chapters of Burke, I started to think about if it's possible to do open source projects "in real life" (not related to computers or software products). Is it possible to make an open source project for hardware, farmer tools or machines? Or doesn’t an open source project work when you have to add expensive material?
After some searching on Google I found this page:
It’s an open source project with DIY-fabricated industrial machines can be used to build a sustainable civilization with modern comforts. A network of farmers, engineers, and supporters are the contributors of the project and they say that they are “lowers the barriers to entry into farming, building, and manufacturing”. The project aims to help poor countries and create a sustainable development.
