On our way to the bank, while listening to the radio (which we don’t usually do unless like when our FM transmitter is dead), something caught our attention and it ain’t Lemmy singing Ace of Spades. It was about Open Source Ecology which is exactly like Open Source Hardware but in a bigger scale and has an aim for: [blockquote cite=”http://www.opensourceecology.org/wiki/Open_Source_Ecology”]developing and testing a set of tools to build replicable, open source, modern, off-grid resilient communities[/blockquote] .
They have come up with a very complete wiki that includes 50 different industrial machines that it takes to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts! If you are used to reading wiki on how to build some open source circuit board, get ready to build some open source tractor, steam engine, wind turbine, and 47 more industrial machines all in the open source way. Take a look at their introduction video:
Now, we need to find some space to park the tractor! 🙂
