Primitive Technology: New area starting from scratch

The primitive technology dude bought a new piece of property and is starting a new series from scratch: clearing a spot for a hut, building the hut and a bed inside. Great stuff.

There are many more of these great videos at the Primitive Technology site and for those who prefer, he has a Primitive Technology YouTube Channel.

Primitive Technology: Pottery and Stove

Digging clay out of a streambed, making some coiled pots and firing them in a campfire. Then, making a cooking pot and a dugout stove for heating water and cooking. Brilliant.

In the Woods

INS HOLZ (IN THE WOODS) from mythenfilm on Vimeo.

Snow, sweat, testosterone and the sound of chainsaws. Every four years, over a period of three months in winter, wood is being cut in a steep mountain high above Lake √Ągeri and prepared for log rafting. Neither economic change nor technology has been able to replace this traditional and sustainable craft in Switzerland.

I’ve watched this numerous times. As someone who heats with wood and processes my own wood, and having worked for a few summers on logging crews in Oregon, this piece has great appeal for me. Very well done.

Hillary Diane Andales explains relativity and frames of reference

This is brilliant.

How do you explain something complex in three minutes? Let twelfth-grader Hillary Diane Andales from Tacloban City, Philippines show you in this prize-winning video on the theory of relativity and the equivalence of reference frames.

Incredible!

Here’s an interview with her: Meet The Winner Of The 2017 Breakthrough Junior Challenge.

A lot of work goes into making something simple.
