Using the design process In engineering, programming, web design and most other creative work, many people consciously use The Design Process. The PBS show Design Squad provides some great examples of how people can work with this system. There are also plenty of resources for working with students and other learners on their site. The Android G1 is pretty much ready for the public to use, but it is still not done. One of the reasons I wanted the G1 was to follow the process of developing a product from initial release. The phone and its systems work ok, well enough for product release. The innovation of the Android system and G1 phone is not limited to just employees, but explicitly involves the community of users and developers to make it a better system. Consider the the original ipod. Steps Often, the is presented as a series of steps that you go through in developing an idea or product. Looping In the image above, and in many other descriptions of the Design Process, it is shown as a loop. Chris Connors
Carte des fablabs | GO TRONIC Qu'est-ce qu'un FabLab ? C’est un laboratoire de fabrication où l’on peut trouver du matériel de conception et de fabrication assistée par ordinateur à disposition des passionnés d’électronique, de bricolage ou plus généralement de DIY (« Do It Yourself »). Qu’il s’agisse d’imprimer des objets en 3D, de fabriquer des robots, une télécommande universelle pour éteindre les écrans de télévision à distance (comme la TV-Be-Gone) ou encore de permettre à une plante de tweeter lorsqu’elle a soif… les FabLabs sont un environnement idéal pour apprendre à bricoler, hacker ou réaliser des projets collaboratifs. Pourquoi cette carte ? La culture du hack Le hacking, trop souvent confondu avec le piratage, est une culture de l’informatique et de l’électronique ayant pour but de résoudre des problèmes, souvent en identifiant les vulnérabilités d’un système. HackerSpaces et FabLabs Les HackerSpaces sont des laboratoires orientés vers la communauté du hack et l’échange d’information et de connaissances.

There are high-quality vegan cheeses out there, but they just don't taste the same, and they're mostly soft-- it's difficult to make any sort of hard vegan cheese, like gouda or cheddar. A team of Bay Area biohackers is trying to create a new option: real vegan cheese. The journey towards vegan cheese began a few years ago, when synthetic biologist Marc Juul started thinking about the genetic engineering possibilities. The vegan cheese team does have a number of vegan and vegetarian members, as well as others passionate about the challenge and the prospect of having cheese that doesn't require the mistreatment of cows. In order to get baker's yeast to produce milk proteins, the team scoured animal genomes to come up with milk-protein genetic sequences. "There are lots of naturally occurring cheese proteins that have naturally occurring [positive] health effects. Research is still in the early stages.
