SketchChair is an open-source piece of software that allows anyone design and fabricate their own furniture using a sketch-based interface. Furniture designs can be uploaded to an online library under Creative Commons Licences. As people continually modify their own and others creations, they contribute to a living ecology of evolving designs.

SketchChair was in part funded though Kickstarter that not only provided funding. But also provided an engaged community of interested people that helped shape the final tool its self. img-flecheHaut

The widespread availability of digital devices that support the convergence of physical and informational components enables a culture of Digital Do-It-Yourself (DiDIY). This session explores how existing legal frameworks are challenged, how the sharing of Open Source Hardware takes place and how we can encourage the growth of a sustainable industrial society.
