InMojo is a community market, collaboration, and project support site for Open Source Hardware (OSHW) and DIY makers. We built the site to help individual makers with the less-than-fun side of sharing their ideas (manufacturing, licensing, selling, etc.) and leave them to the part they like: designing hardware.
InMojo was launched in the Fall of 2010 by 3 very geeky graduate students who felt that there wasn’t anywhere they and their Open Source Hardware making friends could easily share their products, projects, and hardware ideas.
Open Source Hardware (OSHW) is about being a part of the creation process and having the ability to personalize everything in your world to meet your individual needs. It’s an alternative to mass production, top-down design, and to proprietary products and technology.
By opening the design process we can pool our resources to build more complex projects than we could ever build alone, and it gives makers the information they need to hack and customize at will.
InMojo is here to help everyone who wants to make, share, design, or customize their own products. It for hackers and makers. Innovators and hobbyists. Problem solvers and visionaries. Artists and engineers. Renovators and revolutionaries. (And of course geeky grad students.)
Open Source Hardware is a lifestyle where products are manufactured according to our personal situation and immediate context, reacting to the dynamic situations of our lives and environment.
With Open Source Hardware, you get exactly what you need, because you are part of the design process. You’re no longer just a consumer, you are part of the creation process. No matter whether you assemble a kit, or whether you redesign existing product to match your own needs, you’re supporting the growing community of open source makers.
InMojo’s mission is to promote the user-led innovation and design-on-demand process that is at the core of Open Source Hardware.
Make. Share. Live. Open Source Hardware.
