    mapping out the electronics:

    (last revised 1430 on 12/4)

    Right now all my programming time is dedicated to human speakable programming language.

    eventually it will be the human speakable operating system, and be able to support the above mentioned feature set, and much much more.

    Even if I could dedicate the time to do it, it would be almost impossible to test my software without the hardware. The amount of hardware anomalies and errors that occur, and evolutionary algorithms to manage their dysfunction, are best done with an operating system.

    Meanwhile I’d suggest you look at ROS or Robot Operating System, perhaps you can get it to work for you http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ROS_%28Robot_Operating_System%29

    Personally I’m more focused on making a home for myself and my family community.

    Having components with longevity and function adequet for their purpose.

    The robot operating system is already working on the Kingfisher platform, http://www.ros.org/wiki/Robots/Kingfisher , just the thing to haul around Aquapods for aquaculture.

    Could anyone provide a link to the previous discussions on these ‘Bergs’? Where did the name come from? Who is designing them? Do they have an estimated cost for production? etc

    (for some reason the images are broken right now. they’re hosed on a Google Doc and that page is messed up somehow)

    this is where it ALL began

    this is the first physical model i built. started late summer and spent a few weeks building it and then testing it.

    this is the second physical model. just recently bult it and tested it in the Christina River 3 times.

    and now here we are at the current stage of development!

    i’m proud that god put me on this assignment. it gives me something to put my mind to, a real challenge. i think about all the people who go to work every day and report to the boss. im really fortunate to have my own small business and a hobby thats so rewarding. and all my friends on this forum.

    new idea. escape system. a closet (hidden pressure vessel) where everyone runs and gets inside if the berg is submerged and facing an imminent implosion. get in, seal the hatch, and buckle urselves down. push a button to make the pressure vessel eject. self-inflating life-raft attached. SOS beacon and water tank included.

    hmmm yes, I was thinking of an air-lock with scuba-gear and pressure release valve, so can flood the air-lock, and exit the submarine, with enough air from scuba to make a soft transition.

    Though considering that inside the hull the air-pressure is equal to sea-level, some kind of inflated balloon may suffice for getting passengers quickly to surface. People have freedived and ascended from depths of 214m.

    Yes an emergency liferaft would be a good idea.

    Hey I was just thinking about how you had that yacht parked in the garage, what about during submerging? do you close the garage door, or does the yacht get crushed by the cieling? in any case, the garage can hold the liferaft. only issue would be to make sure that the garage faces up during a sink.

    could also have liferaft strapped on the roof, though would have to account for it’s volume during submersion.

    ain’t bad at all. I paid $155 in Florida. :( But why not “sea” or “ocean” habitation systems? Would have been more appropriate, IMHO

    I want to use that same name for my painting and home improvement business so that when i go to build and sell islands, its already an established company.

    Yep gotta hand it to you shred, you did it, managed to get it submerging. bravo *clap clap*

    Hey Rich, it’s not that easy, money ain’t the answer to all your issues.

    You’ve also got to find a place to build, and negotiate the ability to do so.

    Can contact various municipalities and see which one would like a shipyard operation.

    Once you have a place and are on good terms with the municipality,

    you’ve got some protection from third party interference,

    and investors can take you more seriously.

    Serious is all about law, treaties and such.

    Plans, you know how transparency is esteemed nowadays.

    one thing at a time. my next model is 1/16th scale. theres a lot of planning to go into building it. this guy near me owns a bunch of heavy equipment. he said i can definately use his yard to build this model. i’ve been telling him about it since the summer time and he likes the idea. i might be able to get him to lift it up and even put it on one of his trailers to get it to the boat ramp. he’s a cool dude. his nickname is actually “Peg Leg Joe”, ever since his motorcycle accident a few years back (drunk driver hit him when he was at a stoplight). i also got written permission from DNREC to test it at the local boat ramp.

    Theres a lot of industrial infrastructure near me. if this goes well and i decide to build a larger scale model, theres a steel plant 2 miles away from me. i would approach them and find out if i can build it there where they have powerful cranes and trucks to handle moving it around. theres also a plant that has a long pier with a massive crane at the end of it. so yea, i am trying to plan ahead and think of as much strategy as possible. its like im scouting through the fog of war. im just hoping that each model attracts more and larger investment money. i could see 2 more models being necessary (1/16, and 1/8) and then taking the design to a real marine architecture firm and having a complete design and specification created.

    i met this other guy (Andrew Oke) online and started talking to him in the past few days. he is a wizard at using microcontrollers and doing all the things i want to do with the island. once the electronics are built they can be the foundation for larger bergs well into the future. using the same software code you would just scale up the dimensions. last night i asked him to come up with a number and gimme an estimate to build the entire complete system. i’ll report back when i have some more info about it.

    i can build the complete Sebastian 1/16th scale model but its gonna cost actual money:

    concrete hull w/windows – $1200

    bolt-on trailer winch – $400

    electronics (complete system) – $3200

    total – $4800 – could easily hit $6000 with project bloat, it always happens.

    does anyone here believe that strongly in this project? once it is demonstrated at that scale we could attract even bigger investors.

    what if i auctioned the last 2 models to raise the money? top 2 bidders get ‘em. whats ur bid?
