To open-source software means to make it available to the general public, which can be extremely positive in regards to technological innovation and quick progression.
Google has open-sourced its AnyPixel software which allows developers and coders to see and understand their coding techniques and build interactive software programs of their own. The idea was inspired by the construction of the enormous interactive display in the lobby of the company's New York City office, when Google decided to make the same technology available to all. The interactive display allows users to play games, draw, manipulate shapes and there are endless possibilities as to which games and activities can be used.
This interactive display and the idea to open-source the program that created it is a step towards creating a more accessible technological world.
