Have you ever chopped wood? As soon as I saw the graphic with the center-of-gravity off to the side, I got it, in a split second. The solution is simple and elegant and we've been chopping woods for generations and no one ever thought of this before. Will I buy one? No, I no longer chop wood. Nevertheless, this invention renews my confidence in human creativity. New materials like graphene are cool and the wave of the future, but this, this is physical poetry, this is fucking amazing.
