At the Open Source Meets Business Conference organized by Heise publishing house, European start-ups presented their projects yesterday in Nürnberg, Germany. The first to be presented was the Open Source car called OScar. For eight years, a community that has grown to far over 1,000 people has been working on the development of a car based on Open Source, though the project's founder Markus stressed that the goal is development, not production. The automotive industry has, however, already showed interest in the concept.
