It makes me so happy to announce the launch of openMaterials.org, something I have started with the most awesome Miss Catarina Mota. There are a range of fantastic collaborators involved, we are all really excited about the project.

OpenMaterials is a collaborative research project dedicated to open investigation and experimentation with DIY production methods and uses of materials.

In the spirit of the open source software and hardware movements, we hope to promote materials to be researched and developed in a public, collaborative manner. We see materials as an open resource, and wish to establish an open process for exploring and sharing knowledge, techniques and applications related to materials science.

We’d love for you to be involved if you are working in these areas, or interested in learning more about different materials. Contact us and tells us about your research, projects, or if are interested in contributing to openMaterials.org
