Open Hardware is an emerging field, and it will be a standard feature of the open source economy. The most fundamental level of open hardware is open materials - the very substances that things are made of - and therefore are the last frontier for human freedom. Open Materials is a platform to make this happen. By raplacing scarce materials with common ones, we can make resource conflicts a thing of the past. Open Materials can contribute to this. My critique: platform appears to focus on smart materials rather than materials in general. Links:
