This has been my time of deepening my philosophy of a world without money, a gift economy. But this post is not philosophy, just practicality. Philosophy is useless if it can't translate into basic practicality.
Here I share with you my latest finished project, costing zero money:
DIY Chair-iot (Bicycle Wheelchair Cart) for the disabled and/or elderly.
Yes, I just finished building this bicycle chariot for my mom yesterday! We went for a sunset test run for several miles and it was a glorious ride! My mom loves it, as you can see! (watch us riding at the end of video)
It's made with all scavenged materials! I pieced it together from 2 wheelchairs I found (one from the hospital dumpster, the other abandoned by the river). I put dumpstered bicycle tires on the rims. The poles and even the bolts are scavenged. And I even found the bicycle abandoned by the road and fixed it up!
