Primitive Technology enters the age of automation
A couple of years ago, a guy in Australia started making videos of his endeavors in the woods, showing off the shelters and tools he makes for himself from nothing but what's around him. The videos are fascinating and I find them to be one of the most calming therapies available after a hard day of pushing buttons for people in suits.

He never speaks (you can get a running commentary if you turn on closed captions, but they're not necessary) and has a knack for turning sticks and rocks and mud into sturdy tools, pottery, and houses. He cuts the footage with a keen sense of flow and serenity, and has made roughing it into an art form. I've been a fan for over a year now and look forward to his new videos the way I used to look forward to new Bob Ross episodes. It truly is my moment of zen.

Up to this point I've refrained from posting about Primitive Technology in a misplaced sense of possession - to share a gem like this is somehow to risk losing it - but I present this treasure to you now because he's made a technological leap that's worthy of reluctant public celebration: he's entered the world of automation by creating a waterfall-powered hammer that can bust up old pottery or nuts or squirrel heads while he's off fistfighting with kangaroos or whatever. If you're unfamiliar with PT, carve out a few hours of your weekend and go through all of his videos. They'll become your favorite thing on the web.
