Simulating the world of the Future

We tell visual stories about fast open source collaboration between unique individuals. Since the age of the industrial revolution our societies have fought and strived to build ever more faster. Our factories are designed for workers to build endless rivers of hard goods and the assembly line is a crowning achievement of civilization. What if there is a different way? What if the most important information for the assembly of an item is no longer construction of a pipeline but instead a fast distributed process, able to quickly switch and build unique tools for the future instead. Atlas Sailed is building a simulation of a future world, an ideal world. What would be the best use of intelligent machines? Could we build a prototype today?

Atlas Sailed is a rapid prototyping network of curious, not-yet-existent, robot individuals. We experiment with new methods for quickly building a standard process for a single maker to prototype a new way of doing things.
