"If you screw up the screws with your screwdriver, you're screwed". By trying to open the Nintendo DS of his son, Bas van Abel discovered how hard it is to find out how and by who a lot of our products are made. He tells the story about how this process inspired him to embark on a journey to create the first Fair phone.

As an active member of the international maker and digital fabrication community, Bas van Abel has developed a wide variety of projects based on open design principles. As Creative Director of Waag Society's Open Design Lab, he initiated projects such as the community fabrication laboratory Fablab Amsterdam and opened his own open-source restaurant: Instructables Restaurant.
