Totem is an open source all-in-one DIY construction system for makers of all levels. Totem provides unique mechanics, electronics and software solutions.
I am an electronics engineer and a creator and I’ve always loved to make things. While building different mechanical or electronics projects, I’ve often faced some important problems: Firstly, I could not find any construction system with the features that I needed. Secondly, it often got messy trying to solve the problems with what I had in my workshop. It was also time consuming because I had to search for parts, often with different sizes and from different sources. I couldn’t find a one-stop-shop system anywhere. After a while I got tired of solving problems this way. I wanted to invent a new way of building that had the key features I wanted – completeness and user friendliness. My idea has grown into an entire building system which I want to share with you. Today we are a team of makers with different backgrounds; we are developing a construction system which offers a completely new way of building to makers of all levels.
