the world's first open-source car. Cumbersomely dubbed c,mm,n (say "common"), the vehicle was introduced at AutoRAI in Amsterdam.

The project is a product of the Netherlands Society for Nature and Environment, better known as the "Stichting Natuur en Milieu," along with a trio of universities: Eindhoven, Enschede, and Delft.

So how is the c,mm,n open-source? The entire vehicle's genetic makeup (specifications, technical drawings, etc.) are available online to anyone, and the car's creators hope that people will adapt it to their needs and wants, with the caveat that they must share their modifications with the rest of the community.

The c,mm,n was designed to be an environmentally-conscience family vehicle, so it features a hydrogen fuel cell, and incorporates such features as an advanced sat-nav system that incorporates traffic and parking availability."" ()
