Open source team creates apocalypse survival kit

“A team of open source enthusiasts is putting together
instructions for how to build 50 tools essential to establishing
– or reestablishing – a civilization.

“The Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) is being developed
by the Open Source Ecology (OSE) group, and includes such basic
tools as a well drill, steam engine, and brick making machine,
along with more complicated devices such as a bulldozer, 3D
printer, and 50kW wind turbine. These can be built from scrap or
recycled materials at a fraction of the cost of commercial
machinery.”
