See the 4-minute video with a summary progress report on the project and their ‘Global Village Construction Set’ (GVCS):
The ‘Crash Course‘ summarizes developments for newcomers and laypeople interested in supporting the project.
Founder Marcin Jakubowski adds:
“We’re now moving onto the next phase of GVCS development, beyond the work at Factor e Farm to a global collaboration of remote prototyping work funded by further crowd sources and resource development via the nonprofit sector. We are collecting bids from global collaborators at the same time as further development and production is occurring at Factor e Farm, starting with 3 orders of the brick press – tractor – soil pulverizer. Our next steps are fabrication automation with tools like the CNC torch table and precision multimachine for fabricating even the motors and engnines, which allows people to replicate our machines from CAM files, shared globally and built locally.
It seems that this year will be a great step as the several early adopters prove the feasibility of our products. We predict that many will follow as the machines are proven in the field and as CEB houses are built.”
