and states that commercial reactors for domestic use will soon be commonplace.

Read the post on NASA’s Global Climate Change blog written by Bob Silberg of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

There are few write-ups and commentaries appearing online as well. Here is one from Forbes.

And here is a promotional video released by NASA:

How Will You Create The Universe?

From the same group that made the 3D music video to Bjork’s Wanderlust and the maker website for kids mentioned previously,
Like Bjork’s Wanderlust, this video is also available in 3D.

MIT Cold Fusion Colloquium

Scientists from around the world gathered at MIT in 2007 to present their findings in the field of Lattice Assisted Nuclear Reactions, a.k.a cold fusion.

This video is almost 5 years old. The internet says that there are currently functioning devices around the world. The implications of that are the complete and total dismantlement the old economy. Oil, coal, gas, militarism, transportation costs, population distribution… To what length, I wonder, will those whose empires this breakthrough crumbles go to slow down or even stop this transition?

(Really intense soundtrack too.)

Cold Fusion Colloquium at MIT - Youtube

There is a class about cold fusion being offered now at MIT for its second year.

Negative-Kelvin Quantum Gas Stabilized in Lab

Quantum gas goes below absolute zero; mimicks dark energy and paves the way for negative-Kelvin materials and anti-gravity.

Eudea: A Technecovillage.

I’m introducing today, here at, Eudea; a wiki that aspires to help form an open source appropriate technology ecovillage: a technecovillage.

The vision is that of a testing ground for biomimetic and biomorphic design and fabrication, unified by pursuits of social and biological benefit, developing decentralization, automation and accessibility.

Essentially, it is a hackerspace on a village scale and an attempt to fuse the DIY/technological/maker movement with the arts, ecology and healing provinces of psychedelic culture:

Wiki-ville, maker-stead, hacker-habitat, tinker-town, and technologically-oriented ecovillage, Eudea will be a living laboratory for developing and prototyping affordable, accessible and replicable solutions to the challenges of food and energy production, economic and educational models, material scarcities, environmental accord, adapting to rapidly changing technologies and social landscapes, nurturing health and enhancing wellness.

So take a gander at the wiki, and feel free to register an account to add content or be included in a list of interested parties.

You can also keep up to date of any developments by liking our Facebook page or following us on Twitter.

TEDxBrussels: The Hackerspace Movement

Mitch Altman, cofounder of the SF hackerspace, Noisebridge, gives an enthusiastic and inspired TEDx talk about explosive rise in the formation of hackerspaces around the world.

“In the last 63 months over 1100 hackerspaces have popped up all over the planet.”

Creating a Hackerspace in Oakland published an article by cyber-anthropologist and one of the best friends I’ve ever had, Jenny Ryan, about the formation of the Oakland hackerspace, Sudo Room; a creative community space and makerlab with emphases on citizen science, DIY-bio, technology-hacking and social activism. I’ve also been involved for past year in the planning of this project, and we are very excited having have just moved into our official space.

Check out the article at Shareable.

Sudo Room is an open, non-hierarchical, collaborative community of humans, including tech developers, citizen scientists, activists, artists–and all combinations in between and beyond!–who are interested in and working towards social change. Our goal is to create the first inclusive, dedicated hackerspace in downtown Oakland, to share ideas and projects in citizen science, digital citizenship and literacy, environmental sustainability, community engagement, and self-government.

Sudo Room is committed to access, empowerment, transparency, and public/social good. Sudoers have a great diversity of interests and we emphasize respect and solidarity among ourselves and with others.
