My name is Jorge and I am a new member in this amazing community. This is actually my first post.
I have an idea that deals with the incoming sharing economy, which in my personal opinion is crucial for the eventually settled seasteading community.
In the seasteading island, the optimization of resources would be a basic concern. We would need to avoid importing as much material as possible, and we would need to avoid generating as much waste as possible too.
My proposal is a system in which we could share basic everyday items such as DIY tools, staplers, gaming stuff… all kind of objects that everyone likes to possess at home, although we use it infrequently enough to be shared.
For this, all this kind of objects would be registered in a system in which each of them would have an IoT device attached (a sticker containing its identification, and some other needed information).
The system would work as follows:
Lets say you need an object for a specific purpose. Then you would have to pick up your smartphone and use the corresponding App for selecting the object and order it. Then, a drone would fly to the location where the last person used it, it would pick it up, and fly to your home.
The system would register who used it last, if it is being already used, and would let users to rate the good usage of the previous holder.
Comments/reviews are more than welcome. If this idea has sufficient acceptance, I would develop some basic documentation + drawings explaining the system in more detail.
Thanks for reading!
