Making Gadgets Great @ Popular Science. Interview with Joi Ito, new director of the MIT Media Lab…

MJ: OK, I can see that with software, but what about when you’re actually building stuff?

JI: We’ve got Fab Lab downstairs. We can build little micro-size robots, we can build cars. The fact that we can go to the Fab Lab and just build things suddenly does to hardware what open source did to software.

MJ: Won’t there still be a significantly greater barrier to creating it physically than there is virtually?

JI: Today maybe, but it will continue to improve with open-source hardware, where you can download files and modify them and you don’t need to design every piece of what you’re doing. And then, with 3-D printers becoming cheaper and higher-quality, you’ll very quickly be able to print your prototype.
