Hand Carved Spoons

We will demonstrate the use of chopping blocks, spoon mules and shaving horses (all of which we designed and built by hand).

Glassy Day Studio

Faire: Pensacola
Maker: NULL
Home: Florida, United States
Glassy Day Studio gives new life to the waste material from the surfboard glassing process. Large chunks of resin, sourced from a local surfboard shaper, are cut into small blanks, which are then put on the lathe and turned into bangles, hoops, beads, and more.

PuroSole Sistemi Solari a radiazione diretta

Faire: Rome
Maker: Digitarch Farm srl
Heliostats are devices that reflect the sun's rays onto a fixed target. They use motorized reflecting surfaces that automatically follow the trajectory of the Sun. Today they are used only in large plants for the production of electricity with reflecting surfaces of hundreds of square meters and millionaire investments (such as the Archimede thermodynamic plant by Carlo Rubbia). But we think that a heliostat can also be used for other purposes, such as: lighting environments where the sun does not reach, cooking food, water pasteurization, etc. and without the need to use any type of energy other than solar radiation. We have therefore studied and created a simple, cheap and easy to use heliostat. The study and creation of the first prototypes required several years and involved considerable economic resources. A medium-sized coffee roasting plant (30 kg/hour) was also built. The plant, the Hw/Sw projects, the patents, the prototypes, were brought by the partners supplied to the new Start Up Digitarch Farm which will develop the production and commercial process using the already registered PuroSole brand.

+Re Water

Faire: Rome
Maker: Innovazione e tecnologia a supporto di uno stile di vita migliore e dignitoso per tutti
L'idea si basa sui punti 6 e 7 dell’agenda 2030, ossia Garantire a tutti la disponibilità e la gestione sostenibile dell’acqua e delle strutture igienico-sanitarie e assicurare a tutti l’accesso a sistemi di energia economici, affidabili, sostenibili e moderni. +Re Water suddivide il suo funzionamento tra le due fasi principali della giornata, durante la notte recupera acqua, deumidificando l’aria circostante; durante il dì produce energia elettrica e potabilizza l’acqua tramite una serie di filtri in carbonio attivo e lampade di tipo UV. Ma gli sprechi non sono ben visti da noi di +Re Water, ed î per questo che abbiamo scelto di aggiungere una cisterna di raccolta dell’acqua piovana, che verrà in seguito potabilizzata assieme all’acqua deumidificata. Perché scegliere il nostro progetto? Il nostro progetto offre soluzioni innovative, volte a diminuire i problemi di approvvigionamento idrico nel mondo usando solo energia fotovoltaica. +Re Water î basato su una visione a lungo termine e su una strategia di sviluppo continuo con lo scopo di adattarsi alle esigenze di ogni zona e aiutare più persone possibile.
