01) BREATHE UNDERWATER With Just a MASK?!?! – Easy James Bond SCUBA Build (Building Your Ideas #1)


“Here’s how I built a mini James bond 007 spy scuba mask. This device allows the user to breath under water for around 5 minutes on a full tank. The device also features a snorkel that lets the user breath on the surface but automatically shuts during dives, letting the air tank take over. Let me know what you want me to build next!

Wikkelhouse: pick your modular segments & click them together…

01) Wikkelhouse: pick your modular segments & click them together


“After a couple decades creating theater sets in Amsterdam, Oep Schilling and his company of makers Fiction Factory, put their CNC expertise and resources into building a prefab tiny house, using cardboard as the main structural element. Relying on a proprietary machine that can wrap corrugated sheets around a mold, they could create high strength cardboard that serves as both support and insulation.

The “Wikkelhouse”, or “wrap house”, is a truly customizable home composed of 5-meter-square (53-square-foot) modules that click together to create any-sized structure. The 1.2-metre-deep segments (3.9 feet) are first built up from 24 layers of cardboard moulded around a house-shaped frame. Once “printed”, the basic units can be customized: cut with one or two spherical windows, kitted out as a bathroom, a kitchen or even a narrow bunk room or two or three can be combined to create larger rooms.

Schilling says 20% of the orders have been for 8 segment shelters (often for nature cabins), though they have sold a lot of 4, 5 and 6 unit structures as well. “I hope to sell a three because I like it really tiny,” he explains. “Three could work, but it’s a bit like a hotel room, but of course you have the sky, you have a garden. I’ve lived in smaller spaces, compared to a caravan this is like a villa.”

01) Breathtakingly Beautiful Japanese Tiny House on Wheels


“It’s possible that this is one of the smallest homes that we have visited on the show so far and yet without doubt it is one of the most spectacular in it’s design. Japan is a country already world-famous for it’s small space designs, and so it should come as no surprise that when Japanese master-craftsman Tagami Haruhiko turned his attention towards the tiny house movement, amazing things would happen.”

01) BREEDING MAGGOTS, the ULTIMATE FISH FOOD (Surprising Results)! – Feeder for TROPHY TROUT


“…how to make maggots at home using only very simple tools like a bucket, drill and some rotting meat.

I wasn’t sure if our trophy hatchery rainbow trout pond fish from Lyndon would love maggots or not, but the results are surprising!

Maggot Life Cycle

The life cycle of a fly begins when a female lays an egg on a food medium like rotting meat. A female fly can lay up to 150 eggs at a time. Over a period of a few days, the female can make 5-6 batches of eggs. Eggs are deposited in compost, manure and other decomposing organic material. Eggs resemble very small grains of rice.

After 23 hours, the eggs hatch into the first larvae stage known as a maggot. These are legless white insects. They are basically worms with a mouth piece. All they do is crawl around eating voraciously. During the maggot stage, they will molt several times, once at 27 hours and 22 hours, and finally into a pupae at 130 hours.

After feeding, the maggot will find a place to pupate or cocoon into a brown hard shell. This protects the inactive fly. Over the course of three to six days (143 hours), the pupae develop legs and wings, ultimately emerging as full-grown house flies. Within two to three days, female house flies are capable of completing the life cycle and depositing eggs or mating with a female.”

PRIMITIVE COOKING on the BEACH! – Catch and Cook Lobsters and Clams…

01) PRIMITIVE COOKING on the BEACH! – Catch and Cook Lobsters and Clams


“We collect salt water clams using a shovel and then cook up our lobsters in a primitive pit covered steamed with hot rocks and seaweed.

This method of cooking is very simple, you just dig a hole, fill with hot rocks and coals, put in seaweed, whatever you want to steam, then more seaweed and cover with sand to allow to cook. We let it steam for about 30 minutes, until the lobster’s antenna popped off.

The find clams on the beach, look for a small hole made by the clam and then dig out about 6″ from the hole and down 1-2 feet. Be careful when digging that you don’t crush the shell or you will get a lot of sand inside the meat of the clam which is really bad on your teeth.

I’m not sure if this cooking is more primitive technology or bushcraft but it can be done very simply by just digging a hole and heating up hot rocks. We are digging the clams up in Maine, USA on the coast. I license to dig clams for 3 days costs around $15 and you can gather several pecks.”
