We are combining data mining with distributed testing to generate data. We plan to develop open source testing devices with the international Fab Labs network. This opens up the potential for local materials testing and distributed data generation.
Open source hardware for materials characterization is being developed in collaboration with the Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA), MIT, Argonne National Labs, and the National Institute for Standards and Technology on the project OM3: Open Materials Metrology and Modeling.
