That's an awful lot of time and resources to produce a few tiny pellets of iron.
Making iron is hard.

He made iron from bacteria.

I don't think you understand the significance of that.

Technology develops at an exponential rate.
This time next year, he'll have developed multi-core integrated electronics powered by refined fossil fuels.
He claims to have invented that spin blower, which is cool. I've seen how the Africans do this, and it requires basically an entire village to make one iron hoe using 2 goat skin forge blowers.
I'll go ahead and submit that video.
Yeah, double bellows are a lot less work and provide more consistent flow if you can build a big enough set.

But building bellows is much harder. You would need a good skins and good leather crafting skills. I could not build a bellows with valves using primitive means, but I could probably build this blower.

It is too small by about an order of magnitude to be of much use for iron. That's the problem. Otherwise, very clever!

It would work way better with 10 curved blades and some vibration sensitive LEDs.

i love this stuff. I used to mess around with iron and homemade backyard forges during high school. I appreciate this guy's work
All of his stuff is great.


I'd like to imagine he'll spend 200 moons forging a spear to kill some guy at Kinkos.
When does he fight the Gorn?
