"The Open Book aims to be a simple device that anyone with a soldering iron can build for themselves. The Open Book should be comprehensible: the reader should be able to look at it and understand, at least in broad strokes, how it works. It should be extensible, so that a reader with different needs can write code and add accessories that make the book work for them."

Hey people, hit us up with your best small-scale ecotopian visions. Not the grand, world-defining ideologies, but some more local level wholesomeness 💚🖤❤️🥰💚🖤❤️

Just ran across the minimal architecture Zinc Bromine battery.

Here is a guy on You Tube making one. It is apparently low cost, easy to make, takes a recharge well and is relatively safe to DIY. youtube.com/watch?v=CvSYlMtY1C
