Re:Cell Mobile Testing Device

IMG_7473 (1) copy

The Re:Cell mobile lab is a system that tests disaster areas for useable materials and byproducts to re:purpose for the rapid and sustainable re:building of the affected zone.

The mobile testing facility functions on two levels:

Level 1: Testing for biological, chemical and material waste and byproducts that can be re:purposed.

Level 2: Protection and Sustenance of the First re:sponder

The Re:Cell Testing Unit

The Re:Cell unit is a wearable device consists of the following parts:

  1. Re:Sense
  2. Re:Fuel
  3. Re:Build

Re:Sense

The Re:Sense glove tests the environment for the following conditions:

  1. Gas
    1. Carbon Monoxide
    2. Methane
    3. Hydrogen
    4. Liquid Petroleum Gas
  2. Hall Effects Sensor
  3. Ph Litmus
  4. Geiger Counter
  5. Soil Moisture Sensors
  6. Dust Sensor

Once the conditions are established, it will calculate the potential hazards and reusability of the found condition  ie. The PH test will signal acidity. This acidity can be used to breakdown the cell walls of chitinous plant or animal life that can then be re:used for a superconductor or bioplastic.

Re:Fuel

This is where level two comes into play. The wearable device itself will function as its own ecosystem to refuel the device as well as provide the first re:sponder with necessary nutrition and detoxification.

It will feature elements such as an algae bioreactor, mycelium detoxification dome, bio-litmus PH detector and vitamin deficiency meter.

The process is as follows:

SENSOR => DETECTS ENVIRONMENTAL FACTOR => REACTS ON GARMENT => FEEDS RESULTS OF USABLE SUBSTANCE => PROVIDES SUSTENANCE TO THE RE:CELL GLOVE

Examples could be:

Air quality Sensor => Senses CO2 =>  (LEVEL 1:AREA) CO2 is used in preservation and can be used to preserve materials so that they don’t rot. => (LEVEL 2: USER) Feeds plantlife on lives on garment that could be a source of food(mineral)

PH Sensor =>Changes color of litmus on suit => (LEVEL 1:AREA) Find acids (Used to make supercapacitor) or Alkali => (LEVEL 2: USER) Balances users internal PH

Methane Gas Sensor => Senses decay and potential energy source =>  (LEVEL 1:AREA) Source of energy => (LEVEL 2: USER) Decay feeds Mycelium  in Suit for food to user.

Re:Build

Once the elements are identified and the user is safe, the Re:Build can proceed. The Re:Cell suit will store the protocols and necessary trace elements and chemicals to produce the biomaterials required.

We will be experimenting with chitin to create a superconductor to support this step in our research.

Technical Drawing:

We will be working with an Arduino Uno and various sensors built into a garment with visible response outputs. We will also be building biomaterial into the garment itself that will either test or provide for the system.
