DIY Civilization: 40-Part Post-Apocalypse Construction Kit
Article by Urbanist, filed under Gadgets & Geekery in the Technology category.

Worried about the end of the world? A group of engineers has created a series of do-it-yourself machines for building (or reconstructing) society anywhere with access to light, water and soil.

At eight times cheaper than their retail counterparts, these forty gadgets by Open Source Ecology are a globally-accessible alternative for disaster preppers and engineering geeks alike.

Think of them like large-scale LEGOs – the fewest necessary interchangeable parts required to construct essential wells for habitation, basic agricultural equipment for food production, steam engines for energy, 3D scanners and printers for industry and more.

“Open Source Ecology is accelerating the growth of the next economy – the Open Source Economy – an economy that optimizes both production and distribution – while promoting environmental regeneration and social justice. We are building the Global Village Construction Set. This is a high-performance, modular, do-it-yourself, low-cost platform – that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different industrial machines that it takes – to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts.”
