There are some things in the world that people should never lose sight of; some of those things include survival skills, the category of which the OpenStructures WaterBoiler falls under. The OpenStructures WaterBoiler is a functioning kettle made out of random objects that allows people to boil water in a pinch.

A collaborative effort between Jesse Howard and Thomas Lommée, the OpenStructures WaterBoiler shows just how simple such machines really are. Using the OpenStructures design principles to explore an adaptable and scalable production process, this project will ensure that people always have access to boiling water. That is, if they also have access to electricity.

The OpenStructures WaterBoiler is made out of a handful of materials including copper, glass and a few nuts and bolts. Overall, its all stuff that can be found at the local hardware store.
