… The 8 Essentials

Essentials also including the equipment that's necessary to use them, e.g. computers and (cell) phones to access the Internet/phone network.

Universal Production Set

Idea: In order to make it easier for everyone to produce what they like to have, build a comprehensive database of free design and production know-how.

-> The Universal Production Set (UPset) should cover designs, blueprints, and other production know-how for all areas of life, but with a special focus on the 8 Essentials.

The UPset should be a meta-project, integrating and connecting existing free design projects, whenever possible.
