We need a new kind of farmer to feed the 9 billion people of 2050, and these future farmers will have to grow food in drastically different conditions than their fore-farmers. While technology has allowed large companies to progress in agricultural science, their research and data is usually proprietary and is seldom shared with local producers.
 
The Open Agriculture Initiative (OpenAG) at the MIT Media Lab is opening the doors on agricultural data so that more people can learn to be farmers and improve our access to local, fresh, nutritious food. Learn how OpenAG equips users with open source hardware and software platforms to conduct networked experiments in controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) systems that let farmers experiment, innovate, hack, and make our future food systems more transparent, nutritious, and sustainable.

Open source and DIY electronics are filling Fab Labs and maker spaces with new tools for incredible creations. How can we design tools to change how people make things? How to scale DIY electronics to millions of users?

3D Printing Preserves Ancient Bashkir Clothing and Culture #WearableWednesday  
http://adafru.it/eH8

Think how much of our world’s history is lost or forgotten because there was no way to record it. People most often think of protecting language and traditions, yet clothing is a strong part of identity. That’s why I love this project which uses 3D printing to replicate and preserve the original fashions of the Bashkir. First, let’s just establish who we are talking about.

A Turkic people, indigenous to Bashkortostan, which extends on both sides of the Ural Mountains “where Europe meets Asia,” the Bashkirs speak their own language, and it’s said they are mostly Sunni Muslims of the Hanafi madhhab.

According to 3DPrint.com, a group of designers decided to create these fashions for the 3D Print Expo Show in Moscow. As you can tell from the photo, the 3D version of the breast plate, or dulbega as it is called, seems to be more of an ivory color, while the real deal appears metallic. That’s because the original dulbega was fashioned out of coins and jewelry. I like that they've allowed the comparison, because you can really see the detail involved in creating these fashions. Notice that earrings, as well as the trim on the headpiece and sleeves has also been done. Once painted, I’m sure this work could really pass for an outfit of the time.

Looks like they might not be using a heated chamber if they're rafting to blue tape.
