A place to discuss gadget ideas, electronic devices, design tips
So here is the challenge: can you make a device which takes seawater, solar energy and patience to slowly create a store of drinking water, electricity, heating and cooling.
The idea is to reuse the wasted energy from mulitple processes to complement each other - each component is already proven to work, but how effective it would be (timewise) is the tricky bit.
The idea of Life Cube is to build a device that has all the components to create a self sufficient life, or use during emergencies, camping / third world countries.
Basic model does water purification and storage, electricity generation and CPU control. Optional â€˜payloadsâ€™ can include sewerage, recycling and composting, food preparation and various toolkits.
