  • "EMERGENEERS:Last week I've just participated (periferally) in a design sprint to develop a dead-simple laser-cut visor. It's up and rolling, approved by Danish intensive care doctors and completely open source, meaning that anyone can download the files and start production today.It's now in local production here in Denmark and, I believe, in Japan...Read more here, and spread it around!http://www.slaatto.dk/#/emergeneers/"

  • "All very well. But here's the catch: The product itself likely can't be recycled at the end of its service life, and so it will end up in landfill, or at best, in an incineration plant to at least extract a bit of energy (not likely in the US, though).I'll take real wood any day..."
