as some of you might remember from my previous posts, I'm working in the area of open source innovation of physical products for my doctorate. In the beginning of my research I experienced how difficult it is to find such projects and how weak connected most projects are up to now.

Therefore I created the webpage [open-innovation-projects.org]. Our target is to collect a list of open innovation projects of physical products, to show information about the projects and simplify access to them. In the longterm we intent to build a community for exchange between open source innovation projects.

As I've already been in contact with this project, I hope you don't mind that I added it to our list. So far we cannot offer more then other directories, but I guess a link to a project page won't do any harm. You can find RepRaps project entry at [open-innovation-projects.org]

What do you think about this idea? I hope it makes sense to you ;-)

Kind regards

Hello Kerba,

I am also writing a thesis about "Open Source Innovation in Physical Goods and Hardware". I really like the website you have built up.

Hi Kassap,

great to hear!

May I ask at which university your working on this topic and whether you have any special focus?
I'm still in the process of discovering interesting areas and developing suitable research questions - there are so many interesting topics in the field of open source innovation.


P.S. Welcome on my site smiling smiley

Hello again Kerba,

I am wiriting my master thesis in Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) and the are I am focusing on is "Open Source Innovation in Physical Products and Hardware" I believe Reprap is a perfect example of this; but it is really hard to find projects like Reprap.
