21 Technologies That Will Decentralize the World

"We are seeing technology-driven networks replacing bureacratically-driven hierarchies," says VC and futurist Fred Wilson, speaking on what to expect in the next ten years. View the entire 25-minute video below (it's worth it!) And then check out the 21 innovations below. Thanks to Jenny Ryan whose Open Garden newsletter inspired this post. Here are 21 innovations that will help make it happen: 1.

Decentralized technology will become mainstream in 2014, according to the Open Garden Foundation, a San Francisco-based startup dedicated to net neutrality and internet access for everyone. 2. Commotion Router is free, open source software that allows for communities to build their own mesh networks. 3. Do you really want to trust your data to Twitter? 4. The future of devices is micro and wearable. FabHub - Digital Fabrication Hub. Open Source Building System.

How to Make Everything Ourselves: Open Modular Hardware. A modular system unites the advantages of standardisation (as parts can be produced cheaply in large amounts) with the advantages of customisation (since a large diversity of unique objects can be made with relatively few parts).

How to Make Everything Ourselves: Open Modular Hardware

Modularity can be found to a greater or lesser extent in many products (like bicycles and computers) and systems (like trains and logistics), but the best examples of modular systems are toys: LEGO, Meccano, and Erector (which is now the brand name of Meccano in the US). LEGO, Meccano and Erector are composed of relatively few elementary building blocks, which can be used to build various objects.

The parts can then be disassembled and re-used to build something completely different. Apart from the elementary buildings blocks, these manufacturers have produced many more specific building blocks, which are less versatile, but further increase customisation possibilities.

Biowaschmittel selbst herzustellen ist leicht, umweltfreundlich und preiswert

Besonders Familien können ein Lied davon singen: Wenn die Waschmaschine täglich läuft, kommen erstaunliche Summen nur für Waschmittel zusammen. Dabei sind die gängigen Produkte nicht nur unverhältnismäßig teuer, sie sind oft auch haut- und umweltschädlich. Das muss nicht sein! Mit einfachsten Mitteln lässt sich zu Hause ein hervorragendes Waschmittel selbst herstellen, und das völlig biologisch und zu einem Bruchteil der Kosten von herkömmlichem Waschmittel.

Für ca. vier bis fünf Euro kannst du eine Menge an Waschmittel herstellen, für die du sonst 60 bis 100 Euro ausgegeben hättest. Was wird benötigt Das Rezept für diesen Trick ist simpel, für gut zwei Liter Waschmittel brauchst du folgende Zutaten für zusammen weniger als 0,50 Euro: So stellst du das Waschmittel her Die Herstellung unseres Waschmittels ist einfach und geht so: Nach 6-24 Stunden wird die Mischung etwas zähflüssig.

SafariSeat: Open source wheelchair for developing countries. by Uji

Safariseat gives people independence, unlocking access to education, employment and a life beyond the confines of their own home. We’ve put all our resources into getting this far - now we need your support to develop the open source toolkit and begin manufacture with local workshops in Kenya to make as many SafariSeats as possible. Kickstarter is all or nothing funding. Join us, and help people like Letu discover independence. We are Uji, a social enterprise team determined to make a difference. Janna grew up in Kenya alongside local Kenyans.

Years later when studying design at university, an accident confined Janna to a wheelchair for three months. In East Africa alone, 1 in every 200 people lives in need of a wheelchair, imprisoned by their disability. Janna co-founded Uji with Cara O’Sullivan, James Seers & Bertie Meyer - we share the desire to use our skills to help those in need. How to make a modern couch.
