Thinkcycle: Open Collaborative Design

Thinkcycle is a non-profit that grew out of projects at MIT to address significant design challenges, with one focus being design problems in the areas of environment and sustainability. Thinkcycle aims to address these challenges through open source design innovation: providing open design specs and encouraging individuals from around the world to collaborate on solutions. The site encourages new users to review introductory materials on open source design, and become involved in the process by contributing to existing design ideas or creating new ones. Potential projects vary from methods to recycle computer parts to shoes that create storable energy.
