Hephestos.io

Hephestos.io is a tool to enable the Digital Fabrication Revolution. Initiative is run in collaboration with Scimpulse Foundation.

HEPHESTOS.io is a consortium proposal. The goal is to set up a transparently governed organisation to work on a shared and open set of standards and protocols to connect the dots of design, specifications, hackers, repairers, manufacturers, to unbind in the material world the same kind of transformation that the World Wide Web brought to the information ecosystem. The approach is based on the success stories of other initiatives like the Wold Wide Web consortium and LINUX, among others.
