Founder of www.youblob.com, Youblob
My idea is to create a community for hobby engineers, taken from many different subjects, and make it easier to ask, build relations etc.
My idea with www.youblob.com is to bring hobby engineers easier together, primarily to establish interaction with each other, and help each other become better in what they like to do.
For this I have added functions like Chat / Webinar / Project development / Events / Forum / The Oracle / Blogs and last but not least the Volunteer program.
F.ex. everybody can become Project Lead, or host their own Webinar etc.
You are also able to put up local Events that occur in your city, or that you think others might like to know about.
People tend to spend too much time searching for this information.
One of the future plans is to integrate Learning plans on different subjects to the site.
Everyone can write in their own language if they prefer that. And also recieve help from others writing in a whole different language. Chinese is one of the most used languages in the world, it would be silly not to include that. And the japanese are way ahead when it comes to robot technology.
The asian countries have very good engineers, even though they do not speak English.
Lastly, I have made this a commercial free site, I am so very tired of commercials. And I do not see the value in pushing unwanted information towards the users.
This site is all based on open source.
Many subjects... to many?
3D Printing, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, CNC, Electronics, Geology, Programming, Robotics, Mechanical, Molding, Welding
No, I do not think it is to many, they are all interacting with each other one way or the other.
As the site becomes more functional and grows in users, I might add even more subjects.
But for now I believe these are the main subjects that needs to be covered.
It would be very exciting to see Biology projects combine with f.ex the 3D printing community.
(This has allready been done by the way, with producing artificial human 3d printed ear)
Or Geology project combining with Robotics.
Creating an unmanned Drone Scanner, which is one of my next projects I am part of :)
