Now this is a welcomed development. The company Blendtec provided iFixIt with one of their Total Blenders to take apart and document. As you know, we’re always prattling on about “If You Can’t Open It, You Don’t Own It” and other litanies from The Maker’s Bill of Rights. This is a company that apparently understands these rights. Looking at the teardown docs and watching the video, you can see that the blender is well made, with user-accessible parts, clearly marked circuit boards, etc. They obviously know they have a quality, intelligently-designed product, which is why they’re not afraid to subject it to public inspection. Let’s hope this starts a trend.
