An Indian teenager has developed a functioning earth excavator, using a soda can, a syringe, cardboard, plastic and some other junk material.
According to the post, which includes a now-viral video clip, the 14-year-old Arjun is the son of a housemaid. He built the crane with a basic understanding of hydraulics and at a cost of INR 500 ($6).
