Accessibility has always been important to designers of open source software. Now that open source has come to design, that’s more true than ever, as demonstrated with this open source bicycle pedal.
The Screening Room
Smart engineering students at Brigham Young University have devised an open source solution that extends the joy of bicycle riding to some who otherwise would not experience that joy. Watch this heartwarming story in this short video.
The fact that this solution is open source means that cost barriers that might exist are either minimized or eliminated completely. Three cheers for BYU! Three cheers for open source!
