Institute for the Future teamed up with Sun Microsystems and Boing Boing to create the Digital Open, an online tech expo for global youth.

In this video, you'll meet one winning teen: Nick Brenn, whose crafty Altoids tin hacks led to his "Electronikits" store, which sells electronics kits for pocket-sized tin-mod flashlights and other DIY oddities.

The Digital Open is a project of Institute for the Future, in partnership with Sun Microsystems and Boing Boing. The competition welcomed entries in 8 categories: Open Code, Community, Discovery, Earth, Entrepreneurs, Gear, Media, and Play.
