The goal of the 3D-printable cider press is to provide an affordable means of efficiently pressing cider. With scaled-up designs, the press can be used to produce enough product to sell excess not used for subsistence.
The goal of this project is create a safer way to smash and shell acorns
Scalable aquaponics system
Small, easily producible, hand sized, bulb and seed planter. The current opening fits groupings of seeds or a small bulb, but can easily be sized to fit a larger bulb as well.
3D printable can opener (design must be modified to function)
Increases the longevity of food by pressing part, or all of the liquid out of the food. Additionally, with minor design changes the press design could be adapted for other uses, such as for pressing ash to form activated carbon filters for use in rudimentary water filters.
This set reduces the cost of gardening tools not only by using cheap material, but also because it is only necessary to have one handle as the different heads can be interchanged
Appropriate chicken feed holders can help keep feed isolated from contamination such as feces and minimize the outbreak of diseases.
This is a baseplate for a poultry feeder and waterer; a gallon jug would be used as the hopper.
The Purpose of a Chicken Tractor is to use it as a passive tilling system for a tract of land. The chickens living inside the tractor walk, pick, and eat off the grass.
Food dehydration is both a desirable and appropriate technology for many reasons which include increasing the shelf-life of food without having to use refrigeration, and reducing product size which can maximize storage space. Also, the process of dehydration is used to enhance foodstuffs directly (e.g. jerky, fruit leather) and indirectly (e.g. spices).
Makala hii inahusika na uundaji wa mfumo wa kuchuja maji wa gharama nafuu sana. Uchujaji maji unaweza kufanyika kama kuna njia chache ama hakuna kabisa njia mbadala za kupata maji safi toka vyanzo vingine kama vile maji ya mvua, maji ya ardhini (na sio yatembeayo juu ya ardhi)
This device is supposed to replace the mortar & pestle by making it easier and less labor-intensive to grind corn into flour.
Step by step guide to building a retained heat cooker
The OSAT field dressing tool allows the user to cut only what is needed from the animal in a safe manner. With this tool the user can field dress an animal faster and safer than with a traditional blade.
It is a 3D printable handle that serves three functions: a razor blade to cut open the belly, a scoop to clean out the guts, and a scaler to scrape off the scales. This multi-functional tool is all that would be needed to quickly and effectively clean fish in order to increase the storage life.
It allows fisherman to spend their time more efficiently, fish for longer periods of time, catch more fish, use fewer hooks, and cut down on the risk of injury. This means more fish are being used to feed hungry people or sell/trade for economic gain.
The fishing pole rod holder is an OSAT as it allows a person that is fishing to set their fishing pole in the holder that sticks into the ground and can be left unattended to catch fish.
The objective of the main unit is to provide enough dehydrated food to significantly contribute to the sustenance of the two individuals who will be living in the pod during the summer of 2012.
This project is made for people who wish to pick unreachable fruit from trees. Forcing fruit out of a tree causes it to bruise and spoil quicker than that that is picked from with care.
The scoop allows the picker to keep a further distance from the bush, putting a barrier between them and any creatures living in the plants.
This OSAT is a hand cultivator. It is used to clear land and to assist in gardening tasks. This is an appropriate tool because it assists in making a better garden that will produce more crops.
Leaf Protein Concentrate (LPC) is a protein rich substance similar to a curd or cottage cheese. LPC can be made from many varieties of leafs and can feed lots of people for a very low cost. In order to make LPC, the juice must be extracted from the leafs using a press.
The pea is inserted in one end and rotated. The pea is forced out of the shell and the shel exits out the other end. All by rotating the handle on the side of the pea sheller.
This OSAT project was created to assist the senior capstone project for the Open Source Hardware Enterprise, OSHE Growbot. The parts designed are used in conjunction with Drew Vincent's, motor mounts for the Growbot. The Growbot project can be used to fulfill the OSAT 'Zero Hunger' goal.
This project is for the Growbot project by the Open Source Hardware Enterprise at Michigan Tech. The Growbot aims to provide an open source solution to home gardening by taking the guesswork out of growing plants and allowing the user to go about other daily tasks. The OSAT goal that this project is addressing is Zero Hunger.
This design is a 3D printed potato ricer. Potato ricers work by extruding cooked potato (or possibly other starch rich foods) through small holes. This creates a lighter fluffier finished product than conventional mashing.
Team BALM built a Solar Food Dehydrator for the Sanctuary, a non-profit organization located in Arcata California.
In the most basic form, a seed drill is a device that will position seeds in soil, without waste. This idea was an improvement over sowing seeds, where soil was tilled and seeds were thrown over the dirt.
This equipment can be used to sow seeds with relative ease, compared to hand sowing. This product was designed for minimum number of parts and low weight.
The goals of this project are to dry fruit in a sustainable manner using appropriate technology.
he Hang Thyme is a hydroponic green wall that is used to grow herbs in minimal amounts of space; utilizing energy readily available in the natural world. Such energies include gravity (drip irrigation system), sunlight, and heat from the sun.
The M2-B2 Rocket Stove promotes sustainability through demonstration and education while on the WaterPod in New York City. The stove is designed to provide a reliable and sustainable means of cooking by minimizing fuel use and optimizing efficiency.
Design a system that would grow food for the occupants of the barge without the presence of soil.
This project will help hold a wire that has an inductor on the end to sense a frequency induced wire that is burried under ground. It will be attached to the frame of the robot on the front and can be folded up when not in use.
This zero-electricity fridge addresses the issue of people in developing countries not having electricity
