The Wingshield ScrewShield kit is one example of open source hardware that encourages innovation through sharing. It is offered by several retailers, including educational electronics company Adafruit, and used as a component in new projects.

Open source hardware and software, shareware, creative commons, and crowdsourcing are all part of a wave of design and invention that values innovation over profit, and gives credit to creators over restricting access to their ideas. The bonus for many open source hardware producers is that they are making a lot of money!
