OpenRDI

“Abundance is evident.” – as Peter H. Diamandis says. But this is only possible if every human beings is able to access to technology. We at Envienta believe that – with the right tools – technological progress can bring abundance, wellbeing and unlimited wealth to people.

But suffering from income inequality, financial problems and without alternatives, a growing number of people can’t afford appropriate housing, access to resources and thus enjoy the benefits of sustainable technological innovations. Therefore abundance is not  achieved yet. So how open source research & development powers broad innovation?

Research beyond the paradigm

OpenRDI focuses zero marginal cost exponential technologies in terms of circular economic principles, that combined can improve human condition within the biosphere and planetary boundaries. Our advisor Dr. Alexandra Köves, assistant professor at Corvinus University, draws attention to backcasting research in her presentation, from which a very utopian vision of the future unfolds. However, given the limits to growth and the megatrends, these are all realistic alternatives.

Smart Home

We establish common interfaces and APIs in a smart home space that is still fragmented. We need easy to use, web-based, cross-platform interfaces for any device to serve our needs of ease, security and energy efficiency. Our partners are collaborating with Envienta, through open source division of products and services.

Smart Garden

Today we can spend less on food with homegrown vegetables and the same time we can reduce the amount of soil and water usage. A smart hydro- and aeroponic garden monitors and tracks the environment. A mobile app give your plants a voice, make care recommendations and send you reminders. In partnership we’re developing high efficiency, intelligent, modular, indoor gardens.

Renewables

Renewable technologies right now tend to go open source. Good examples of it are the printable wind turbines and few solar flower projects we engage. It may be a good time to go solar or wind to reduce your consumption.

3D Printing

New 3D printers are capable of printing in different shapes and sizes and provide a tremendous benefit to interior designers and individuals to furnish their homes. There are millions of free available 3D models on the web and a growing number of printable products. Our goal is to make them available for home owners, help to customize with open source softwares and printers.

Robotics

The project is also focusing on Open Source hardware that may be useful in robotics applications and research. There are three directions of household robotics: entertainment, home appliances and education. The robots will not move around the house tomorrow, but they are getting better and smarter every year. We can start small and build step by step.

Sensors

Huge economic, environmental, health and security benefits are expected from the sensor age. Big data, useful insights, as we know. We have cooperation with projects which developing open source health diagnostic devices for everyone. We have connections to universities in Europe involving them into water and air pollution measurements in urban and rural areas, using open source eletronics.

Materials Science

We engaged in the field of nanotechnology with household applications from graphene composite, clothing, cosmetics to even surface coating. The  open-source paradigm can both accelerate innovation and public investment into the field. In this way, the full potential of nanotechnology will drive the next industrial revolution, where matter can be manipulated as easily as software today.

Plasma Research

The vast majority of the visible universe is plasma, yet it has special properties, including conductivity and the ability to interact with the magnetic field. From the wide range of uses of plasma We investigate the effect of plasma vibrations on biological systems, human physiology, and consciousness, since the scalar wave created by plasma passes through all material structures practically without resistance.

Cognitive Science & AI

Ever since the Nobel Prize in Physics, we have been officially forced to acknowledge that Space and Time, interpreted linearly, have ceased to be fundamental. What does this mean, for example, in the methodology of brain research? Are there any interpretable boundaries, “transcripts” of experiences that still remain within a logical framework? We research the depth levels of sensory perception, we investigate new ways of information processing.

Blockchain

Growing like cells, connected to each other, sharing experiences, new communities can be included in OpenRDI which can provide for energy to each other, can do barters, can try individual systems of financial settlements, even in large distances, in different countries. We need a distributed database for resource indexing, financial transactions and enable private blockchains with managed permissions.
