  • If you consider by yourself a Maker, and haven’t heard of open source hardware pioneers Wevolver yet, it’s most likely time to get by yourself familiar with! Wevolver serves as a platform for Makers to share their files and instructions for a few their open hardware projects, and have hosted a few absorbing 3D printed innovations. Take the 3D printed InMoov robot for instance, a human-sized robot that has been to be utilized to serve hospitalized children in London. They’ve in addition taken on an open source motorcycle (Tinker) and a robotic observatory (Project Ultrascope), capable of communicating with the International Space Station. Now, Wevolver is being best known for their open source platform, that has encouraged Makers across the world to share and innovate in a collaborative way.


    At this year’s prestigious SXSW Interactive Festival, Wevolver was presented with the “3-DIY” Interactive Innovation Award, honoring those advancing the digital industry and integrating interesting emerging technologies into our talked about culture. One of 65 finalists, Wevolver was chosen by the panel of judges for their good results in building 3D printing innovation additional accessible and amazing for equiteone.

    “Getting this award at SXSW as a young startup is rad, especially for the open hardware movement. This movement, where project creators share all the knowledge and files of their hardware project openly, is a relatively young movement,” said Richard Hulskes, co-founder of Wevolver.

    “The fact that SXSW recognizes this is quite significant for the reason it brings open hardware to the attention of a sizeable audience. This and the fact that individuals have effortless access to the knowledge and tools, such as 3D printing equipment, can manufacture individuals realise that they can manufacture a lot of innovation themselves.”


    To me, the fact that they’ve managed to assist individuals in require along the way manufactures them all the additional deserving. For instance, Wevolver won the “Health and Wellbeing” Accenture Innovation Award in 2015 for their work in building DIY prosthetics additional easily obtainable. It is rad to see a platform that is concerned with putting high end technologies directly into the hands of the DIY community get acknowledged, especially at an internationally best known festival such as SXSW. According to Wevolver, both Hulskes and the other Wevolver co-founder, Bram Geenen, are already in the midst of a seven week tour across the United States, and are meeting with those who are collaborating to manufacture their open source hardware projects a reality.
