Open Press Project: DIY Printing Press - Printmaking is an art technique that has been around for more than 500 years. Back then, it was used for illustrations in books or to print banknotes. Today, printmaking is known for its distinct look and is being used by artists around the world. However, a lot of people don’t have access to printmaking due to the high costs of a printing press. As a designer and printmaker, I wanted to address this problem and designed a press that can be produced with a 3D-printer. The Open Press Project is the most inexpensive and most portable press yet and is being used by printmakers around the world - Martin Schneider 

Building the video version of Wikipedia - VideoWiki, a proposed sister project of Wikimedia Foundation, is a free multi-media encyclopedia that anyone can edit. It is a proposed sister site of Wikimedia Foundation which aims to visualize the sum of all human knowledge. Wikipedia is predominantly a text-based encyclopedia; therefore, VideoWiki aims to add a visual layer to Wikipedia, ensuring that, in the future, the sum of all human knowledge is not limited to just text - Pratik Shetty
