Mechanical Small Space Solution

Transforming Bed is a design by Benn Colker and Daniel Strongwater that creates space where there once was none.  An outstanding option for the space challenged, it allows the bed to be pulled up to the ceiling using a counterweight pulley system that is completely off grid.

*UPDATE* Fire Starting W/O Lighter



This is a real experience from a novice on how to start a fire with a magnesium fire starting kit.  

Posted on YouTube by DEMCAD.

*UPDATE*  This magnesium starter kit really works as easy as that.  I went to a gathering that needed a fire lit.  Scraped off magnesium filings.  Sparked the steal.  Bam!  Fire!
