Explains 5 steps to build a house using open source components. Is this the future of home building?

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Open source has revolutionized software development and other technology areas. Can it also be applied to real-life products? This is exactly what this is all about: revolutionize the way we think about our everyday products by having low cost options with no patents or protections. This should keep costs down and foster innovation. Watch out.
