Open Source Ecology are developing open source machines that can be made for a fraction of commercial costs, and sharing the designs on the Internet for free.
I have started initial considerations for developing an OSE branch at the Castle, and if all goes to plan, that may happen. Workshops that will utilise the open source community of free engineers to help homestead and independent farmers in England & Overseas, to make their own farming machinery. How about a workshop where you build an 18 ton, open source bulldozer – in 3 days? A demonstration of open source for extreme industrial power. check out the videos on their site.
Marcin Jakubowski is the founder of Open Source Ecology, an open collaborative of engineers, producers, and builders developing the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS). – So that anyone can build and maintain machines at a fraction of what it costs today.
