Cracked It – What’s it all about?

Cracked-it is an online platform helping disabled people connect with each other and with makers, designers and engineers from across the globe to find and share fixes, tweaks and hacks. By sharing practical ideas we hope more disabled people will find great solutions to every-day challenges. Get ready to say “Eureka, you’ve Cracked-It!”

How it Works

1. Set a Challenge

Have a problem with the products you use? Wish something worked differently? Challenge the Cracked-it community to come up with some creative solutions!

Post a description of the issues you face using a product you already own, or a problem you need solving even if no equipment exists yet! The Cracked-it community could provide a DIY fix, suggest something to buy, or maybe design something completely new that might help you (and others!) overcome the challenge.

2. Share a Solution

Have a nifty idea that could help disabled people? Post it here! Whether it’s a quick DIY fix or designs to be manufactured, share your inventions on our open-source platform for people all over the world to benefit.

Share a tutorial or a video to explain your fix, and upload drawings or 3D files so people can give it a go themselves! If your idea solves a challenge posted by another Cracked-it member make sure to link your solution so other people looking for solutions can find it.

  1. I think I have maybe found a place I belong. I have recently become disabled after a very physically, mobile, interactive life. Now, I am stuck inside my home, unable to go anywhere except doctor appointments. I have a good imagination, sewing, crafting, creating–no one to share with. My daughter is at school and sells the things I make. I also have a card campaign for state side military and Wounded Warriors.

    • Hi Sharon, I’m so pleased you like Cracked-it! I hope you’ll be able to put your creativity to good use and craft some things to help at home, please do share any tips or tricks you’ve found useful and of course get in touch with Cracked-it’s sponsor DEMAND (www.DEMAND.org.uk) if you need any help making, happy creating!
