Bildr is one of the most amazing DIY projects I've ever encountered. The idea, as articulated on Maker:

Create a visual Web-based library of componentized instruction sets, 'building blocks,' for doing various hardware and software constructions. Put a bunch of these components together, and you have all of the instructions you need to execute a multi-part project. It's extraordinarily ambitious, but when you look at other crowdsourced creations, such as Instructables and Wikipedia, it just seems so doable. But to make it happen, it'll need LOTS of love, care, sweat-equity, money, and people power.
