The Distributed Design Awards 2020 celebrated innovative, supportive and sustainable design across Europe with 170 open call entries and 7 category winners.
The advisory board of the Distributed Design Awards 2020 carefully selected the winners of each category (Future Thinking, Cultural Significance, Circular Design, Adaptable and Open Design, Sustainable Production, Design for Emergency and Project Excellence) based on a set of guidelines aligned to the principles of Distributed Design.
Along with the official announcement, we are thrilled to congratulate the winner of the ‘Adaptable and Open Design’ category, OttoDIY 🤖. The category prioritized a ‘Design that is made open source, is transparent and/or allows for adaptation and/or custo
misation’ and OttoDIY stood out!
🏆 The prize includes a Wikifactory membership for a year and personal onboarding session.
Completely open-source, from the hardware to the software, OttoDIY is a small customizable robot that encourages hands-on making without age constraints.
Otto Remix Challenge
In 2019, OttoDIY launched the #OttoRemixChallenge inviting makers and robot lovers around the world t
o customize Otto to jump, roll, dance, turn, move and more. With +80 submissions, the participants and the Otto community shared files and documentation on Wikifactory making the remixed robots available for anyone anywhere in the world.
Otto Inventor Program
This year, OttoDIY launched the Otto Inventor Program for its community and beyond aiming to sell the greatest inventions and pay royalties to the designers. So far the Round One is completed and submissions with the Inventor Program actually tackled new technical functions on the engineering side.
From faster walking to getting up after Otto falls, these approaches were done through engineering cleverness.
