Here we have a video of two of our 3D printers working on some components of the poop separator for the incinerator toilet. The poop separator does exactly what its name implies, it separates the solid waste from [...]
One of the biggest concerns about building a floating home is corrosion. Seawater, humidity, and the constant exposure to both will corrode just about any metal that you put into this environment. Protecting steel is pretty straightforward with [...]
Part of making a super-efficient home is finding ways to repurpose things that would otherwise be wasted. In this case, we will be repurposing the heat that is generated from our jet incinerator system. Since the incinerator system [...]
The jet incinerator toilet system in the SeaPod will be used to safely dispose of toxic solid waste by burning it until we are left with just a small bit of non-toxic ash. One of the important things [...]
The burners for the incinerator toilet are fueled by propane gas. Since this system will be fully automated, we needed a way to automatically operate the valves to control the flow of gas to the burners. We are [...]
Today, Grant has a really exciting project to show us, energy-efficient steam-powered turbines. When thinking of steam power, many might conjure up notions of old, behemoth trains and factories, but steam power is by no means confined to [...]
One of the most important research and development projects that we are focusing on is the development of a solar-powered steam turbine. We have spent the last year and a half working on this project and we have [...]
There aren’t many things about the SeaPod that most people would consider ordinary. We are pushing the boundaries everywhere we can and the shower is no different. While it would have been easier to install a simple knob-controlled [...]
The SeaPod is a smart home that brings various aspects of the home to life. Nearly every part of the SeaPod has integrated technologies that take the normal everyday tasks that we do and bring them into the [...]
The floor of the SeaPod will be pieced together with custom-cut sections that are unique to each room. The panels are cut from large sheets of flooring and fit together almost like a puzzle. The design of these [...]
