Robot turns trash into new products
Help new start-up Alphapura Robotics fund a major global solution, one promising to better the lives of everyone on Earth, as follows. We believe we have discovered and made something really big, a system that turns a major global problem, plastic pollution, into a million major global solutions.

Save, have, and use more. Spend, consume, and pollute less. A common sense appliance we need to deliver to the world to make the world better.
To get this prototype to the world in as fast and as affordable manner as possible, we are looking for donations of $1 or more. Share if you care! :0)

The cost savings of not buying new products, but making them out of the ARMS unit instead, could allow users of this machine to not only pay off the unit with its every use, but to make a profit, by turning their home, office, and the world's garbage problem, into brand new products for themselves and others.
As a pre-revenue organization, as we are just getting started, and so per David, we need the $16K funds to, buy more parts and systems to make this working prototype safer, more visually appealing, patent compliant, to make it interact visually and verbally with the user via artificial intelligence sensors, leds, and voice activated prompts, to pay for a new device safety inspection, to add a battery and solar panel to be able to use off the grid, and to add a CNC tool function, and finish up our artificial intelligence that teaches users how to use the system so they never have to learn how it works to use the same.
Above: ARMS grinds recyclables like plastics salvaged from the ocean and landfills into a small meltable material that looks like rice, which ARMS then melts, guided by 3D software designs, to build over a million different types of products with nearly any shape, only limited by the size of the machine. One day we'll print houses, boats, cars, furniture, art, building supplies, and maybe even electronics, by switching out the 3D designs, its that easy.
Above: Alphapura's story is actually the solution to a problem encountered while developing a different product, Aquapura , a 3D-printed water purification system, promising to turn ocean water for 2 billion people into drinkable water, and water for crops and animals, to alleviate the global fresh water crisis, famine, and starvation, developed and patented in 2013 and 2014 in the US.
The idea was too expensive due to the high cost of 3D printing filament, plastic spaghetti users have to keep buying and feeding their 3D printers to make things, much like printer ink, and a small personal Aquapura unit the size of a Britta tank, would have cost $400 in filament to print, not price competitive with solar stills.
Above: Frederick and the kids made the first Alphapura prototype out of a Lego EV3 robotics set and programmable software.
Frederick organized Alphapura's International R&D (AIR) Collaboration to develop the prototype with a Spanish and Australian engineering and manufacturing team, David Bassetti and Mahor Muniz, and ultimately that's how ARMS was born, and rose into home and office recycling manufacturing appliances, a new product acquisition system, a faster, cheaper, and thus better product acquisition system.
It will take less time and money for users to make a wide range of products with our system than to go to the store or to order online. The cost savings may well pay off the system and allow users to make a profit by selling the new products they make.
A common sense solution to allow homes and business to make their own products out of their own recyclables, saving thousands of dollars (small scale home and office production of products, prototypes, art, gifts, building materials, models, tools, learning tools, medical aides, furniture, shed, 3D photocopies of things around your house, etc) ... to hundreds of thousands (a house), depending on the size of their built-to-order systems and access to meltable garbage or recyclables, which most of us generate a large volume of every year.
We aim to turn the likes of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch into millions of type of products, turning a global problem, dumped meltable pollution, found in 70% of seabirds and fish, into millions of types of relatively inexpensive global solutions, using a global problem to solve global solutions.
As you can see, we have a working prototype, but our R&D team needs $16K more to develop a commercial-ready machine, to be made in America, that meets safety regulations, and want to work out how to offer a rechargeable battery, and a solar panel for the system, so ARMS can be taken into the field or off-the-grid.
We also need to add a CNC laser and/or drill function, so that blocks or bricks of recycled materials created by ARMS can be CNC-machined, cut, or edged by ARMS, allowing for both additive and subtractive manufacturing functions in users' new recycling bin's smart manufacturing system, to be facilitated by artificial intelligence we are working on, so that users never had to learn how to use the machine, but instead A.I. leads them down a decision-making pathway to help users build a million different types of things, in as easy a manner as possible.
Please consider supporting our cause to turn global problems into millions of global solutions, by supporting us with a donation, or just reaching out.

Watch as salvaged ocean garbage is ground and melted into a brand new product using ARMS beta unit at www.alphapura.com. Imagine being able to talk to a machine in your home and office, which you feed your garbage to, and which you tell which product you want it to make, with a million product choices to choose from. Save, own, and use more. Spend, consume, and waste less.
