Intro: Open Source Green Cool Hat
We created this design in a workshop at Fab11 Boston on Design from Manufacturing. We would like to have this design open source for the following reasons:
- Open Hardware should not be limited to electronics
- Digital fabrication should be green or it won't be the motor for any kind of third revolution
- Having this Open Source could make this Robin Hood look cool again
Try it and post your photos with hashtags #green #fab11.
