We live in a world powered by tokens. Your car probably still uses the old style—a metal key that completes an electrical circuit when inserted into the ignition. The key identifies you as the user and grants complete control to do as you want. Newer cars use electronic keys. Sometimes these keys simply need to be in your pocket, able to communicate their presence with a small radio and receiver. More generally the key is a type of token. And from your perspective, it doesn’t matter what it is about the token that empowers it to empower you. It only matters that it does.

Open Source Hardware is a popular and growing movement. An organization (sometimes charity, usually a non-profit) develops hardware designs and specifications and publishes them to the open source without the desire or potentially the ability to produce the physical products exclusively themselves.
