ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

Repairing things yourself will become more important in the future. On the one hand, because developers and producers intentionally integrate errors and predetermined breaking points into products, so-called planned obsolescence. And on the other hand, raw materials are becoming increasingly scarce and thus more expensive. With the availability of open source software and 3D printers, this trend can be counteracted, in the spirit of the Repair Caf├ęs: repair instead of throwing away!
