Modern Flint Tools

Allison Guy

Stone tools are the most ancient evidence of our ancestor's ingenuity, proof that we've been augmenting our bodies for millions of years. These flint tools by Ami Drach and Dov Ganchrow update our prehistory with modern materials and techniques. Each knapped tool is scanned and then outfitted with a form-fitting 3D-printed handle. In marrying the most basic fabrication technique with one of the most advanced, Drach and Ganchrow's project demonstrates how modern technologies return us to the tribe.

I'd like this idea! I love that it has a touch of ancient tools and with a modernize handle. It looks so wonderful.

Is this for real?! :) This looks nice. Combining ancient and modern technologies.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
