Internet of Production Alliance

From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search

Open shource project. Designs in repo are prototypes. At least one (Otto education robot) is a licenseable product, with GPL, CCBYSA license. Currently it is largely abandonware with non-replicated projects, but there is potential for productization. No explicit intent for productization or historic transfer of wealth is expressed, but it is possible that this will emerge out of it. MJ note - could be a good ally for development standardization. For example - Open Know-Where, a new open data model to help share data about manufacturing capabilities online. That's great, but first we would need open source production machines to be available. I don't see strong evidence of this platform becoming an open source product development platform, rather than a showcase. The former is collaboration-centric, the latter does not move the dial on People Don't Collaborate.
