Video: Do you remember the Green Destiny sword from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. I didn't. But that damascus steel blade finished with jade is so damn gorgeous and stunningly detailed that, after seeing the guys at Baltimore Knife and Sword make it, I don't think I'll ever forget it again. The whole build process is so intensive. From how they alternate and stack different metals; to folding the metal on top of each other; to etching out the design, carving the jade and adding the finishing touches, it's one of the most beautifully intricate swords they have ever made.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
