This was originally aimed to be a subcategory for the Design section, but was not maintained or developed.


To fill this new subcategory proposed by Franz Nahrada, the items indexed in our Product_Hacking directory, should receive an added category tag "Products_and_Projects_based_on_Open_Design". In the meantime, please refer to that directory page.

Here is the subcategory of projects that are not based on computers and electronics, updated until June 2008:
