Check out this short documentary by Tyler Bastian and Cameron Trejo. It's called Everything is Incredible, and in it, it's about a man named Agustin from Honduras. Why is this so incredible? You see, Agustin can't walk. He lives in poverty, and he's on a wheelchair but he spends his days making a helicopter, all from trash.
In 1958 he embarked on his life's work: the construction of a crude, custom-designed helicopter made completely from trash with the exception of a few pieces of rebar purchased from a hardware store. Even the chains he uses to power the propeller were forged by hand.
Watch the video. Everything is incredible. And too add, nothing is impossible. [Vimeo via Colossal]
