We tackle the issue of access to and training in the use of disruptive technologies for localized development. Disruptive tech can have huge impact on the lives of people around the world, but in many locations people have no access to the hardware. These new disruptive technologies are cheap, easy to use and can produce huge impact in a short period. Many global issues, from lack of education resources through poor quality medical devices up to low farm output can be tacked by localized design.
We use low cost consumer 3d printers along with free online open source 3d modelling software and databases to help the people we engage with to innovate, create, design and produce their ideas. We provide hardware, training & support (via online systems) to empower people. Other projects provide finished solutions, where as we provide the tools and knowledge that allows the solutions (and further improvements, upgrades and replacements) to be produced onsite, by the people we need them.
