Open Design

There is an increasing amount of technology aimed at empowering more people to create and disseminate designs which when couple with access to the internet enables them to share these designs widely. Open design is concerned with development of products, systems and services that make use of publicly shared design information such as free and open-source software (FOSS) as well as open-source hardware. Open design is a form of co-creation where the final artefact is generally designed and created by the users themselves.
