I don't know about that.  It's a different crows than the one that hangs out here, for the most part.  But mechanical innovation is alive and well (consider Boberg for example).  And there's 3d printing.  And there definitely are people who can use machine tools to build amazing stuff.  Give them a few pieces of steel or brass and a bunch of time, and they'll hand you a fully finished model airplane engine, for example.

I have not just old computers but an old lathe, too.  Not that I'm much good with it, but I know a few of the basics...
