Geometer is a new design tool and form language mediating between the physical and digital world.
It is made to be understandable, communicable and dynamic.
-No black box, encouraging active participation and goal oriented design.
-Components open a channel for dialogue around relationships and patterns.
-Built-in system that encourages strength and freedom of form without compromise.

There are three components to this project:
(1) A kit of robust physical and digital components with unique names and specific geometry which can be combined in a modular fashion.
(2) A system of communicating the interactions of these components.
(3) A way to easily physically manufacture complex assemblies made up of modules, in a variety of materials reliably of considerable size.

All documentation is open source and published through the Open Source Hardware Association.

Using open ended molds based on these reference modules, complex assemblies can be easily communicated, understood and manufactured.
