We want to begin a 2014 Open Source Hardware pilot project, and warmly welcome you collectively to help in its planning and development. This will lay the symbolic cornerstone for future projects in Berlin.
Open Source Ecology (OSE) is a public movement that develops Open Source Technologies in the sectors of machine production, architecture, ecological agriculture, renewable energy and transport – from tools to tractors and wind turbines. The Technologies are continually assessed according to OSE’s basic values of sustainability, reproducibility and modularity, DIY capabilities, and improved ecological design. OSE technologies will be made freely available to the worldwide community online. The goal: to speed up local and global innovation that promotes environmental sustainability and cooperative coexistence.

We invite you to …
hand in project suggestions
… make suggestions for the building of machines and devices until March 21. You can therefore fill them into the following document: -> http://bit.ly/ose-berlin-project
take part in the decision and the building process
… meet us at ThinkFarm Berlin, Oranienstr. 183, on friday, March 21. Come out to get to know one another, discuss projects, and collectively decide the next project to implement in the coming months.
We’re looking forward to great project ideas, and working together with energetic people to make a difference!
At least Alex Shure will be present at the 30C3. If you have any questions about Open Source Ecology, Open Source Ecology Germany or just want to meet in person, feel free to get in touch. You can reach us via mail or phone, preferably via the free and open source, secure messenger Telegram (a better alternative to WhatsApp, Facebook messenger and so on). Alex Shure’s contact details can be found on etemu.com.
The 30th Chaos Communication Congress (30C3) is an annual four-day conference on technology, society and utopia. The Congress offers lectures and workshops and various events on a multitude of topics including (but not limited to) information technology and generally a critical-creative attitude towards technology and the discussion about the effects of technological advances on society.
Markus Bergmann, Lamy and Dirk from Freiburg are working on an Open Source Bike Trailer, with which one can transport 50-150kg vegetables and other goods. The projects is aligned with the Open Source Ecology vision and can be supported on startnext.de.
The roadmap is:
- Till February: organize money and sponsors, Crowdfunding, continue parallel 3D CAD constructions.
- After February: build the bike trailer (relaxed for 3-4 months).
- After that use it as prototype in the garden coop and get valuable Feedback.
- End of summer, beginning of autumn start with documentation, videos and Fotos and publish it on different plattforms.
Saftstraße is a new German Wiki for Open Hardware Components for the utilization of fruits and the produciton of fruit juice.
Next year they will develop pasteurizer (continuous-flow water heater on wood fire). You can register yourself on WikiWoods for the workshop.
