[edit] Introduction

The Liberator Open Source Brick Press is nearing the stage of viral replicability - with significant implications: for enabling low-cost house building; humanitarian projects; and other applications. This is a checklist of items that OSE is working on to make viral replicability a reality. On December 18, 2012 - we will demonstrate how to build this brick press in one day. This is extreme production efficiency, which contributes to the replicability potential of the machine.
