Marcin Jakubowski is open-sourcing a set of blueprints for 50 farming tools that can be built cheaply from scratch. Call it a “civilization starter kit.”

A Global Village Construction Set.
The Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) is a modular, DIY, low-cost, high-performance platform that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts.

Come and see two of the 50 machines from the set at Maker Faire! Marcin will be exhbiting two of his machines and speaking about his project Saturday and Sunday.
