I would personally very much love to build one of those. I imagine containing the hydrogen would call for something more dense than a thermoplastic though, wouldn't it? Hydrogen can leak through metal, let alone plastic..

All these Open Designs are great.

Anyone know of a group trying to Open up Manufacturing itself - so I
can get access to the expensive tools needed to implement one of these
designs?

In general I think that the OM community on this list is doing that. If you want something more focussed on exactly what you're talking about, see:

RepLab (rep...@googlegroups.com, http://groups.google.com/group/replab?pli=1)

It's an offshoot of the Open Source Ecology project inspired by the RepRap and FabLabs.

The list is pretty quiet, IMHO because we're heads down getting on with realising that vision. :-)

Cheers,

Leo
