Massimo Banzi shows how the Third Industrial Evolution is inspiring imagination in this Open Source Keynote. Banzi is the co-founder of Arduino, an affordable open-source microcontrollers that is used around the world for interactive projects. The tool is used for a variety of projects from art installations to satellite gear to toys, and can be picked up by anyone. The open source hardware and maker movement are thriving due to their openness.

The world is seeing a turbocharged DIY community who believe in collaborating to help each other. They work online where technical projects explained and people are teaching each other, in websites such as Instructables. This movement relies on individuals sharing their insights and allows other people to learn by looking at others people work. The openness is key because as Banzi states, "you don't need anyone's permission to make something great."
