From a group of about 200 applicants, POC21 selected “the 12 most-promising open source products” in the fields of food, energy, housing, mobility, and communications, and the five-week innovation camp that was held from August 15th to September 20th brought together some 100 participants “create a proof of concept for a sustainable tomorrow.”

The final 12 projects/products can be seen on the POC21 website, some of which we’ve covered before, such as the $30 DIY wind turbine and the Aker urban ag kits, but there are also compelling projects for DIY solar (both PV and solar thermal), cargo bikes, 3D-printed water filters, home food production, and a pedal-powered tractor.
