Open Models : un ouvrage collectif sur les modèles ouverts

Pour partager les conclusions de ce cycle de réflexion sur les modèles économiques ouverts, Louis-David Benyayer, cofondateur de Without Model, a passé les derniers mois à coordonner la réalisation d’Open Models, un ouvrage collectif disponible en précommande dès aujourd’hui. Entretien. Qu’est-ce qui t’a à l’origine poussé à te pencher sur les modèles ouverts ? Louis-David Benyayer. J’en avais assez des discours négatifs.

Il y a beaucoup d’énergies positives quand on regarde dans les marges, et les modèles ouverts constituent une partie de la réponse aux défis auxquels nous sommes confrontés. What to Know About the Maker Movement and Why You Should Care. This entire week, events around Washington, DC have been centered on spotlighting the Maker Movement – a group comprised of craftspeople, tinkerers, hobbyists, inventors, and overall enthusiasts, all of whom engage in the act of creating.

What to Know About the Maker Movement and Why You Should Care

Rather than the mere inventors of the past, these do-it-yourself “makers” have access to modern technologies, robust resources, and an easily accessible network of support that enables them to take part in the global economy. Build technology together! Wanna Build a Rocket? NASA's About to Give Away a Mountain of Its Code. Forty years after Apollo 11 landed on the moon, NASA open sourced the software code that ran the guidance systems on the lunar module.

Wanna Build a Rocket? NASA's About to Give Away a Mountain of Its Code

By that time, the code was little more than a novelty. But in recent years, the space agency has built all sorts of other software that is still on the cutting edge. And as it turns out, like the Apollo 11 code, much of this NASA software is available for public use, meaning anyone can download it and run it and adapt it for free. You can even use it in commercial products. Concept: Intimate Care Products. Save, Create and run your own pirate bay. Vers une économie open source: Une nouvelle révolution industrielle.

3D Printed IRON MAN Child Prosthetic Hand. Internet of Things - ThingSpeak. Open Design and 3D Printing Yield Improved Device for Cystic Fibrosis Care. Sometimes, the realities of the marketplace mean that companies simply cannot justify making a product for a niche application, and this can be particularly true for high-tech items such as medical devices that may have a tiny user base.

Open Design and 3D Printing Yield Improved Device for Cystic Fibrosis Care

Thankfully, the power of open-source collaboration – combined with the versatility of additive manufacturing techniques – means that products can now be made that bypass the traditional commercialization route. A perfect example can be found in a collaborative design effort to create a dispensing device for medicines used to treat the genetic disease cystic fibrosis (CF), spearheaded by researchers in the UK.

The team – from Sheffield Hallam University, the University of Sheffield and the CF unit at Northern General Hospital – enlisted the aid of patients in the design of the new dispenser, which aim to overcome some of the barriers to treatment with Creon, an enzyme preparation that is used to help CF patients digest food. Animated Turn Signals. The controller is a PICAXE-14M which uses a ULN2803 darlington driver to drive the LEDs.

Animated Turn Signals

On my car, there is no constant 12v supply to the tail lights, so I designed the circuit to operate in two modes. When the controller sees that the tail lights are on, it does the animation. When the tail lights are off (and its only getting intermittent power from each blink) all the LEDs turn on like normal turn signals. The normal mode also seems to give a little more visibility during the daylight. 10 Reasons To Use Open Source Software-Defined Networking. 3D Printing and the Challenge of Intellectual Property. I’m sure you have been in the situation at home where you have misplaced an important part of your vacuum cleaner, broke a key of your laptop, or even worse, the handle of your favorite pan.

3D Printing and the Challenge of Intellectual Property

Such items could be easily replaced with the help of a 3D printer. But why aren’t the masses embracing 3D printing? Most technology experts give these three answers to this question: Slow printing speedLow printing qualityRelatively high price of quality printers. School of Open Africa to launch in September.

What if no one contributes? , we worried. We had spent a week writing documentation, automating the developer setup, filing easy issues, paring down the repository, and preparing licenses. We wanted to demonstrate that open source should be the default choice for many startups and games, but if we failed, then we would have done the opposite.

We needn't have worried. 64,000 views 2275 stars 537 forks 223 watchers 50 contributors 711 commits 139 pull requests #1 trending repo on GitHub for the day we launched #6 trending repo over the first month.
