Open Source Nano starts from the belief that most of the new ideas, tools and materials that are discovered and engineered could take an infinite number of paths.
Open source technology need not lead to better software, websites, robots and weapons; they can lead to better drinking water, better soil or cheap, non-harmful, non-invasive diagnostics. The problem today is that the former are more profitable than the latter, and so few scientists or engineers spend time thinking about them, while people around the planet continue to demand them. What if these roles were collapsed? What if everyone were encouraged not only to use nanotechnology, but to innovate as well?
OS Nano provides a way to do that by contributing to a commons in knowledge and technique that is legally free and open to everyone. Our aim is to expose all open source technology, with your help. Please submit your open source technologies to us and we can share it with our readers.
