Wealth Without Money
Matt Sparkes | Make Vol. 10- 2007 | Pdf | 2 pgs | 1 mb
all over the world, an organization is working to bring the means of
production to the masses. Their motto. "Wealth without money."

or communists --- they're hardware hackers.

Adrian Bowyer, at Bath University in the U.K., leads the RepRap
project ( to develop a design for a very special
rapid-prototyping machine. The device treads a fine line between
being capable enough to produce complex goods, and simple
enough in design that it can produce its own parts. The result is
a self-replicating machine, with the potential to spread across
the planet at an exponential rate.
