For an interesting look at how an "amateur" inventor did a lot of out-of-the-box thinking (plastic frame, for example) which led to the now standard Glock pistol, see the just-published “Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun,” by Paul M. Barrett. The first 1/3 is about the design and design process, the rest is about contracts, legal hassles, and other issues.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
