Heavy Industry without the Heavy Equipment

Heavy Industry without the Heavy Equipment

Here at RocketNews24, we like to bring you the latest and greatest, whether it’s (potentially) killer mechs or adorable new fonts ! But sometimes it’s nice to take a moment to appreciate the beauty of raw human ingenuity.

Here’s a group of Thai men constructing a new building foundation using nothing more than their body weight and a see-saw-like plank to drive a concrete pole into the ground. Bouncing up and down, the workers chant along as a middle-aged man, perhaps the foreman, taps out a simple rhythm on a tambourine. And, amazingly enough, in under thirty seconds they’re done, without a tractor, crane, or jackhammer in sight!

Kinda, almost, sorta makes you want to consider a career change, doesn’t it? (Well, maybe not…)
