Open Source is showing up in a all kinds of places beyond computer
programs which of course are used in all realms.
I just heard about one new to me...

Open Agriculture Initiative MIT was featured on
National Public Radio's program "Splendid Table"

Global data collection and the future of indoor urban farming


 The urban farming movement takes many forms, both indoors and
 outdoors: school gardens, community vegetable patches, fish farms in
 tanks. Scientist Caleb Harper believes that indoor urban farming
 specifically can create the best tasting, most nutritious, and least
 energy intensive crops anywhere in the world. Harper is director of
 the Open Agriculture Initiative (OpenAg) at the Massachusetts
 Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab. He and a global collection of
 “nerd farmers” are working on a Food Computer, which closely
 detects – and allows you to adjust – the growing conditions of any
 plant in the room.
