The project is the brainchild of Adelaide developer Alastair Campbell, and the results are already being seen.
Campbell has built four cable-making facilities in the city, including one in his own backyard, in an effort to boost his city’s energy efficiency.
And his team is using a simple design to bring this design to the masses: an aluminum foil and a cord.
“You have a piece of aluminum foil that is attached to the outside of a cable, and then you have a cord that is connected to the foil,” Campbell said.
“We put that cord in a box that is held on the outside by a metal plate that is welded onto the cable.
The result? “
That way, when you pull the cable, it pulls out the aluminum foil, which allows you to cut it in half and then weld it together to form the cable.”
The cable looks like a big block of metal that sticks out in front of you, and it’s actually quite easy to make, Campbell said, even if you don’t have the tools.
You simply bend a wire to form it, and you can cut it with a knife or even a pair of scissors.
It’s a simple process that doesn’t require special equipment, and can be done with a couple of wire-cutting tools and a little patience.
Campbell says the results have been fantastic.
He said he’s already received dozens of emails from people around the world thanking him for the effort.
“People have been really interested in this project, and they’ve been asking questions about the process,” Campbell told ABC Adelaide.
“They’re saying, ‘Why is this happening, why is this even happening?'”
He said people are really intrigued by the idea of building a cable-like structure that can be used to power their homes.
“It’s really interesting to see people taking a look at the possibilities and getting excited about this idea.” “
This is the first time in Australia that you can actually do that,” Campbell added.
“It’s really interesting to see people taking a look at the possibilities and getting excited about this idea.”
Campbell has also set up a community website to let people learn about his project.
“One of the main things I wanted to do is give people a little bit of insight into how this thing came about, so they can make their own informed decisions about it,” Campbell explained.
“The people on the website have been absolutely fantastic.
They’ve been so helpful in talking to us about this project and being involved with it.”
Campbell is also working with other local businesses to develop a cable system that will run along Adelaide’s north-west corridor, from Cairns to Tuggeranong.
