Open source ecology

Hey Paul (and everyone else), I saw this and thought it might interest you. Its a bit off topic but its called Open Source Ecology. To quote from their website
The Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) is a modular, DIY, low-cost, high-performance platform that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts.
A TED Talk from the project founder introducing the project. Marcin Jakubowski: Open-sourced blueprints for civilization - YouTube

And the cougar controller gets a mention on their wiki. Electric Motor Generator - Open Source Ecology
