That reminds me a novel from Isaac Asimov where someone comes with an innovation: he is able to use a pen and a paper to add numbers and explain they can use that to replace computers...

actually we can use technology only if if we are able to read and write.The opposite cannot be realised.

Le récupère-couleurs : machine de teinture textile écologique et Open Source par Rosa Tapioca

Ce projet est le tout premier projet de fabrication d'une machine de teinture écologique et open source (c'est-à-dire non-brevetée et respectant les principes du partage technologique).
Aurélien SINGER's insight:

I found this thing very interesting. I am so sorry that it is in French but it is about a small French company. You can learn a bit more in English at this address : http://theissuemagazine.com/rosa-tapioca/

 

You must wonder : "What is the point with new technologies?"

The thing is that Aurelia Wolff created her own machine which plans are open-source. It enables to produce eco-friendly clothes with natural colours thanks to fruits and vegetables but also it uses 5 times less water !
