Brute Force and Ignorance

Brute Force and Ignorance is the Solarflower blog. The Solarflower is an open source solar energy collector which can be made very easily from common recycled and salvaged materials, using basic tools and skills.

It can be made almost anywhere, is portable, involves no inputs or emissions and has no real limit on how much power it can produce.

Applications include electrical generation, water purification, cooking, bio-char and charcoal, heating, gasification, and whatever else heat can be used for.

The blog covers a LOT of alternative things, from Solar showers to super-simpkle greenhouses to home-made Sporks and is worth a look for anyone interested in off-grid living.
