Comploo: Outdoor Heating Made from Compost


Japanese design firm Bakoko introduces a new way to get ourselves warm and cozy at the outdoors in an environmentally-efficient manner.  The Comploo is a portmanteau of “compost” and “igloo,” which kinda give you an idea how it works.

This outdoor structure uses a heat dispersal method based on storing biodegradable wastes within its walls, keeping its internal temperature up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.  The compost that would be created out of the Comploo is then extracted and used as fertilizer.

There is, however, something icky about the Comploo.  How can it be assured the warm air coming from the compost and out to the interior would not smell like trash?  A prototype will be developed soon.
