How Rebar Is Produced in a Japanese Factory

posted by Jason Kottke Jun 20, 2023

The immense scale of the factory and the intense temperatures involved (along with a musical soundtrack that sounds like Interstellar by way of Philip Glass) makes this video about how rebar is made compelling viewing. There are several scenes from this video that would not be out of place in this collection of Real-Life Infrastructure That Looks Like Sci-Fi. And there's a color gradient moment near the end that's really lovely. (thx, alex)
