DailyDirt: No Electricity? No Problem (Sorta)…
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
So many modern conveniences require an electrical outlet or a natural gas line into your house. Sure, there are some nifty gadgets that can generate electricity when you’re out camping or otherwise off the grid, but what do you do if you want some appliances at home — and you forgot to pay your utility bills? Try out a few of these devices.
- The Drumi from Yirego is a portable washing machine for clothes that can clean 6-7 articles of clothing using pedal power. It’s basically a big/fancy salad spinner that you pour detergent into… and the official crowdfunding campaign for it hasn’t even started yet. [url]
- You can build a zeer pot to keep stuff cool without electricity. ICYMI, this is an evaporative cooler that’s been used for centuries in Africa. [url]
- If you want to cook something without lugging around any kind of fuel, you can pre-order a GoSun Grill from this Kickstarter project. It’s completely solar powered, and it includes a phase change material to act as a thermal battery, so you can cook even at night (as long as there was some recent sunlight to charge up the battery, that is).

Solar cooking is neat. For camping.
A great way to cook when on the road...
The Telkes Still
The Telkes Still, developed by Mária Telkes (1900–1995), was a sort of inflatable rubber pillow, with additional internal partitions. It was compact enough to fit in a pocket, like any other rubber pillow. However, when inflated and placed in the water, it became a solar still. to extract fresh water for drinking out of salt water.
And there's no need to repair anything.)
And really, if there’s no electricity, there’s no problem! Real Middle Ages! Why machines, why appliances, when you can basically do without them? Then there would be no need for any repair shops, not https://plus-appliance-repair.com/, not Apple repair or anything else! Let’s really get rid of electricity))
