The Birth of a Tool - Part III

It is a tragedy of the first magnitude that millions of people have ceased to use their hands as hands.
This is the 3rd part of our documentary series uncovering the process of making Scandinavian Damascus steel or pattern welded knife. Our team recently has joined one of the most skilled bladesmiths in the Baltic States - Chris. This movie is a dedication to him with an honor to his skills and experience. Special thanks to the band Foreign Fields from Nashville for allowing us to use their song as a soundtrack for our documentary.

Fearless Genius Project

Doug Menuez was  invited by Steve Jobs and other leading innovators of the Digital Revolution to record their stories of struggle, failure, sacrifice and success. From 1985-2000 he photographed the people who created more jobs and wealth than at any time in human history. Now he’s sharing his rare photos and eyewitness stories through the FEARLESS GENIUS project.

By Doug Menuez
An indispensable look at how the world we know now was actually constructed … a vital piece of photographic history.

This is how we move by Human

We visualized 7.5 Million miles of activity in major cities all across the globe to get an insight into Human activity.

Human helps people move almost twice as much in six weeks. Every day, people track millions of activities with our app. We visualized data in major cities all across the globe to get an insight into Human activity. Walking, running, cycling and motorized transportation data tell us different stories. Visit for 30 cities worldwide.

Human is an iPhone app that runs in the background of your phone and automatically detects activities like walking, cycling, running, and motorized transport. All visualizations and charts are solely based on aggregated data from people using the Human app. Imagery shown does not involve the use of maps, as white pixels were drawn by moving Humans.
