Elon Musk's new high speed transport project is open design - open source

Elon Musk's new high speed transport project is open design - open source | Critical & Creative thinking | Scoop.it

The project is said to be based on open design and open source principles calling for feedback. Here are the two related quotes:

 

“Hyperloop is also unique in that it is an open design concept, similar to Linux. Feedback is desired from the community that can helpadvance the Hyperloop design and bring it from concept to reality.”

“The intent of this document has been to create a new open source form of transportation that could revolutionize travel. The authors welcome feedback and will incorporate it into future revisions of the Hyperloop project, following other open source models such as Linux.

Edoardo Pandolfini Barberi's insight:

This is a really fascinating future way of transportation. Is really intriguing and make me recall about Brunel's high speed transport based on pipes pressure difference.

Design Process Kills Creativity / Design Process Creates Creativity

Design Process Kills Creativity / Design Process Creates Creativity | Critical & Creative thinking | Scoop.it
When analytic thought, the knife, is applied to experience, something is always killed in the process. That is fairly well understood, at least in the arts... Something is always killed. But what is less noticed in the arts—something is always created too.-Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the art of Motorcycle Maintenance I teach design process to people with very little experience in design, at a thing we call the Design Gym. The response from our attendees is always very positive.
