Nokia embraces open design

News: Nokia has become the first major manufacturer to give consumers access to its  3D design files so they can create their own versions of products, according to open design pioneer Ronen Kadushin.

“I’m pretty sure they are first global company to have a go at open design,” said Kadushin, following last week’s news that the Finnish mobile phone brand released digital files allowing users to alter and 3D print their own shells for the Lumia 820 smartphone.

mine kafon by massoud hassani - kickstarter campaign

afghan product designer massoud hassani grew up in a war-torn kabul, on the edge of the desert. as a child, he and his friends used the constant
wind and relatively flat terrain to race homemade wind-powered toys across the rocky terrain. after the military occupation however, soldiers left
thousands of landmines hidden just under the topsoil, posing a deadly threat to the innocent inhabitants of the area. now, many years later,
massoud revisits the still-present mine situation that has by now claimed the lives of many citizens. using his experiences as a kid, he reinterprets his
old toys into full scale working wind machines that cost 40 euros. like a sphere made of long bamboo plungers with plastic caps, the ‘mine kafon‘ can
be rolled across the landscape without human assistance and with its many legs and adequate weight detonates forgotten landmines. as each limb is
modular and cheaply reproduced and replaced, the construct can be used time and time again at a low cost. an embedded GPS chip will transmit the
locations of cleared areas, creating a map of safe zones and saving countless lives in war-devastated regions as it combs over the ground disarming
dangerous explosives.

the project is currently seeking funding via kickstarter, with the campaign ending on january 17th, 2013;
and will become part of the MoMA collection and exhibited at the museum in march.
