Growing Interest In Open Innovation

While the technical aspects of the RiverSimple car are certainly relevant, the most interesting thing about this story is the idea of open innovation, allowing independent companies to lease (license) the intellectual property.

Several organizations and companies are proponents of "open source" automobiles, and I believe it is an idea whose time has come.

However, there may be segments where it would be more appropriate than the common OS target which is mini cars and basic transportation.
