Note -- this is just a template/draft. Don't think of these criteria as being set in stone or anything.


At $50000 for 6000 square feet, below $9 per square feet, we're supposed to beat current housing prices by two orders of magnitude, while surviving an entire year in the open ocean, with almost full self-sustaining capacity. I think the watermaker for a single family, alone, represents half that budget. The proposed figures are obviously way off.



Remember that this is a prize, akin to the X-prize. It's supposed to be really hard to win! Severe constraints inspire creativity. Getting people to move out onto the middle of the ocean is hard. The advantages to moving will have to be compelling. It may be that we'll need to drive down costs by two orders of magnitude in order to overcome the disadvantages of living on the ocean.

In any case, if you think the constraints are too hard, what do you propose instead?
