The Global Village Construction Set
The GVCS can be used not only in developing world applications, but also in reinventing local production anywhere in the world. It is a community based solution for bringing wealth back to local communities. It can be used to start local food systems, renewable energy production, a construction business, parts manufacturing, or many others. Because all the plans are open source, they can be used to start small enterprise and reduce barriers to entry.When I first watched the projects this team has taken on I wondered how they could accomplish so much in such a short time as it becomes obvious that there is a tireless energy level on that Missouri farm both for thinking and for constructing and doing. For much more information and a complete set of links on this project see my previous post and videos here. Deere and Caterpillar, watch out, you have been warned.
