1. The guys at Re-Char, a small startup that makes carbon-negative products, were faced with a problem. They wanted to ship products to Kenya, but the options available were wasteful, costly, and not nearly as efficient as simply manufacturing near to the customers. To do it, in a place with little industry or infrastructure, Re-Char designed something new—a fully functioning, off-the-grid factory inside a shipping container.
    You can read more about this here and there is also a vid: The Next Industrial Revolution Starts in this 20-foot Shipping Container

    Just thought it was interesting and relevant, note the price tag if you want to buy one ready to go...i wonder if that's "Mach3 Gold Edition" they are running in the vid and what you get for your $50,000 ?
