Building the Global Village Construction Set
The longterm goal of Open Source Ecology (OSE) is the complete development of the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) – a modular, DIY, low-cost, high-performance platform that enables fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts.
Donations to OSE directly support the research and development of the GVCS by purchasing prototyping materials and supporting the developers.
OSE works openly and transparently. Our current progress on the GVCS:
For less than it costs to go to the movies, you can make a meaningful contribution to the completion of the GVCS.
We believe the completion and publication of the 5o machines in the GVCS will mark a huge milestone in the advancement of our civilization. If you do not have time but would like to offer financial support – the True Fans program is for you. Please consider pledging a small donation monthly. Our goal is to grow our community to 1000 True Fans to sustain and expand this project.
