you could install composting toilets and produce your own soil.

That literal shit is magic. In the spot where I emptied out the compost bucket, we now have 3 giant tomato plants. Much bigger than the plants we've been carefully tending.

Re: %vbP8FAwAr

The problem is the accumulation of human pathogens (if it isn't your shit). You can actually buy "sludge" from waste treatment plants, which is treated digested waste. If you grow cow food on it, then turn the cow shit into human food, you're golden!

It's a self-contained hotpot with a FRH, you add water and it boils the hotpot sauce.

kbox-web

I'm having a shot at building a web UI for kbox, a Signal-K/NMEA-2000/NMEA-0183/WiFi enabled Arduino.

One thing I want is to be able to connect arbitrary devices to the input pins, and convert calibrated analog voltages to discreet NMEA 2000 messages (as N2K has a well-defined set of reverse-engineered message types). The idea is that you can enter several values then automatically generate a reference curve. I want an expansion board to interface with anything from water tank level sensors to engine controls.

I made a little 3D CSS thing for orientating the IMU/accellerometer.

Signal K is actually really nice. It's just a JSON object representing the state of several vessels. It's much higher level than NMEA2000/CANBUS/DeviceNet, and doesn't define things like physical connector standards or sensors types, so sK and N2K both work together. I've started working on a little module for implementing it on web apps.
