  • Why is OSE so far up the technology chain? (What about water?) - Open Source Ecology Forums
    a circular saw Along with the mechanics of building the higher level machines using the lower ones is the question of paying for materials If you have a good paying job and can just buy stuff great but what if you don t My approach would be to sell products and services from what you have now to afford the next level For example you have a sawmill and some portable tools You can do remodeling and storage buildings garages with the lumber you produce and use that to buy materials for the next tool upgrade Vote Up 0 Vote Down Matt Maier December 2011 Permalink Options for water http opensourceecology org wiki Category Water Vote Up 0 Vote Down Danial December 2011 Permalink I have had the same thoughts as Jesse and yet I can understand why the GVCS is starting a step up from the basics Ive always understood the GVCS of as being made by industrialized countries for industrialized countries In this it would be assumed that a person or people has immediate access to the basic nessesities of life with a little extra to put towards building materials If this project was being run out of a third world country with third world budgets and needs in ind then it would obviously contain fundamentally different machines then the ones that were chosen For someone without water for example a machine that collects and purifies water would be the number one priority A person with no need to think of water because it is in abundance will not include such a machine in their construction set and will instead focus on other things like a tractor Ultimately it would be preferable to have both the basics water food shelter AND the current GVCS on the same DVD so to speak This way it doesn t matter where you are on the resource scale there is still something there for you to work towards In the current format with current goals it may be wise to view the project as an Industrialized Village Construction Set Just my personal opinion of course but it does make sense On the topic of water another interesting technology is the Living Machine by John Todd http en wikipedia org wiki Living machines I would also recommend the book from eco cities to living machines by John Todd It is a great read http books google ca books about From eco cities to living machines html id Z ObhorvGJkC redir esc y Vote Up 0 Vote Down Allen15 December 2011 Permalink Although there is a Well Drilling Rig listed as one of the GVCS50 I think that it would be far more ecologically responsible to focus on harvesting rainwater better water storage because that can be done effectively anywhere that there is at least 7 inches of rainfall annually per real world experiences of Mike Reynolds of Earthship fame This way we don t encourage folks to further deplete already declining aquifers and at the same time they may be better able to slow or stop needless erosion and topsoil losses in places with seasonal flooding seasonal dry spells Vote Up 0 Vote Down Matt Maier December 2011 Permalink It s less about what is responsible and more about what is pragmatic The organization has to prove itself if it s going to have any hope of getting the support it needs That means it has to harvest the low hanging fruit first Once they ve got a couple dozen machines into alpha or beta prototypes and a network of collaborators validating the designs THEN they might start worrying about other machines It s far better for OSE to build a tractor that just does tractor things for 1 10th the price of a commercial tractor and get lots of positive attention then to fail to build something that will save the third world and disappear into obscurity like so many previous organizations have Vote Up 0 Vote Down kts May 2012 Permalink Im afraid access to water is one of the fundamentals of any community The solutions have been the same for as long as humans have been around you either put your community next to a source of fresh water ie lake or river or you get it from the ground ie a well Rainwater can supplement these but you wouldnt want to rely on it as your only source Obviously as our ability to pipe water has improved the distance our communities have got from these sources has increased but the fundamentals remain the same What you do with the water once you have it is more of an issue Dirty water kills millions every year 2 simple solutions 1 Most of the power generation via steam could be used to provide clean distilled water for drinking 2 The Center for affordable water and sanitation is not mentioned in the wiki but provides their educational materials free http www cawst org the biosand filter is particularly interesting as it is scalable http en wikipedia org wiki BioSand Filter Vote Up 0 Vote Down Robotbeat June 2012 Permalink In third world countries typically hotter than temperate probably the easiest way to sterilized water is to set a clear plastic bottle of to be refined water in the hot sun on a hot tin roof A few hours at high temperatures will make the water safe to drink Plastic bottles are easily available as trash in much of the world And a lot of houses even in the slums have tin roofs But I do think that there are some tools that would be better if they were peddle powered incidentally these are easier to build with the gvcs tools than larger ones and I am not aware of an open source data base of such tools But if gvcs is not for developing nations or Apocalyptic developed nations what is it for Is OSE just an open source hardware group that

    water And have two different applications in two different form function this one can be received using the dynamic flow passage as a receiver Or it can be generated with a power plant generating a propulsion An example cut be as a Bike needs a chain to work from motor to wheel And for the Imploturbocompressor application cut be as in a circumstance at the engine as an A activate flow and with a a tube flow conduit going to the wheel as a B receiving flow the work use To see a Imploturbocompressor animation is posible on a simple way just to check the Hurricane Satellite view and is the same implo inflow way nature And when the flow that is received and that is intended to be used at best must no necessarily by a exhausting or rejection gas but must be a dynamic passing gas or liquid flow with the only intention to count it or to measure it This could be possible at the passing and interacting period when it passes inside its simple mechanism This can be in any point of the work flow trajectory In case the flow that is received is a water falling by gravity and a dynamo is placed on the rotary bar the Imploturbocompressor can profit an be obtained by generating electricity such as obtained by the pelton well like I say before The Imploturbocompressor is a good option to pump water or a gas flow and all kinds of pipes lines dynamic moves Or only receive the air liquid flow in order to measure its passage with a counter placed on the bar because when this flow passes through the simple mechanism of a rotating wing made of only one piece it interacts within the implocavities system And this flow can be air wind with the difference of can have an horizontal work position and that particle technical circumstances make an easy way for urban building work new use application and have wind flow from all the sides 180 grades view The aforementioned information about this invention refers to technical applications such as a dynamic flow receiver whether being gas or liquid With the appropriate power plant and the appropriate dimensioning and number of RPM this invention is also feasible to generate an atmospheric air propulsion and the auto propulsion of an aircraft Being an effective and very simple system that implodes and compresses the atmospheric air permits the creation of a new concept of propulsion for aircrafts due to its simple mechanism and innovative nature At the place of the aircraft were the system appears and the manner how the propulsion direction can be oriented with a vectorial flow no lobster tail with I call yo yo system middle cut at the shell to move one side loose guided and balanced is feasible to create a new concept of TOVL vertical take off landing Because the exhaust propulsion can going out radial in all the 360 vectorial positions
