"The development of basic tools, wheels, pulleys, cranes are the simplest most basic instruments for manipulation of our environment through technology. Created for a specific purpose, they have lessened physical barriers and allowed humans to simplify their everyday lives throughout civilisation.
Today, Low-Tech makes sure we remember our mechanical heritage and human interaction with nature and its forces. Low-tech is simple, reliable and energy efficient.
Wheels and pulleys are Low-Tech, they are used to transmit energy and motion, they reduce the amount of force needed to lift a load. Simplicity and motion.... practical extensions of the human body."
