The Global Village Construction Kit

Using wikis and digital fabrication tools, TED Fellow Marcin Jakubowski is open-sourcing the blueprints for 50 farm machines, allowing anyone to build their own tractor or harvester from scratch.

And that’s only the first step in a project to write an instruction set for an entire self-sustaining village (starting cost: $10,000). Call it a “civilization starter kit.”
