Open Source Ecology (Construction Set)

Here is an interesting TED Talk video about an open source ecology plan.

The Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) is a modular, DIY, low-cost, high-performance 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. We are talking about tractors, bread ovens, drill press, a car, a brick maker, and more. Tools that can last a lifetime that can help people, at fraction of the cost. Watch the video to learn more. (hey, is that Ubuntu running on a laptop at 2:10?)

And dont forget to check their website if you want to contribute in any way. You can also download schematics, instructional videos, 3D designs, project budgets and more…

I am a linux user for over 10 years and Ubuntu linux is my only operating system. I originally made the jump from Windows to Ubuntu and open source back in early 2007 (using Ubuntu 6.10) for privacy and virus concerns.
