In the spirit of our ongoing #DIY month, today I’d like to introduce you to UK-based charity TechForTrade. They’re getting ready to launch a challenge aimed at making the most of 3D printing technology. 3D printers are fast becoming accessible and increasingly powerful. They can build component parts such as hearing aids, and they’re on their way to becoming an affordable consumer appliance. Some can even build replicas of themselves (the ultimate #DIY).

Yesterday, we told you a little about Expert Patient, a patient advocacy system created by Manuel Gill and submitted to the NetSquared project gallery earlier this year. Today, we’re talking Earth Tipping Point, another project that caught our attention in 2011. ETP is a network and collaboration system focused on implementing environmental ideas and solutions, and it crossed through the NetSquared project gallery a few months ago.

You know what we like, here at NetSquared? We like social innovation projects. We like it when you shake things up. Nothing warms our hearts more than seeing the creative, innovative approaches to leveraging technology for social change that imbue the NetSquared project gallery.
