What is Wikifactory? 什么是维可易工厂？
Wikifactory is the place where great ideas become even better products. We’ve embedded an agile hardware product development Workspace within a very different type of social platform. One dedicated to productivity.
We’re 90,000 members from over 190 countries, and we’re growing fast. Our Community of product designers, engineers and enterprises comes together to design, prototype and manufacture hardware products in more agile ways. At Wikifactory we provide the tools to do this, and we make them available to everyone.
Why we’re doing it
Our vision is to build the Internet of Production - bringing networked capability to digital product development and fabrication.
Just like the internet allows everyone to participate in producing and sharing ideas, a distributed infrastructure for physical products remotely and online could enable anyone to participate in the design and production of physical things. Disrupting not just one industry, but industry itself.
By removing the barriers to participation, innovation and opportunity in product design and manufacturing, we want to help great ideas have a better chance and a bigger positive impact on our world. In fact, nearly half of the projects on the platform have a positive Social Impact (aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals). And we're proud to say that this the fastest growing project cluster on the platform.
By changing how things are made, we can make things change.
