Cody Rutledge Wilson (born January 31, 1988) is an American crypto-anarchist and law student. He is best known as the founder and director of Defense Distributed (The island of misfit objects), a non-profit organization that develops and publishes open source gun designs, so-called “Wiki Weapons,” suitable for 3D printing. Wilson has been named one of the 15 most dangerous people in the world by Wired magazine.
Cody Wilson: “We want to show that a handgun is printable. You don’t need to be able to put 200 rounds through it…It only has to fire once. But even if the design is a little unworkable, it doesn’t matter, as long as it has that guarantee of lethality.”
