Wasn't sure exactly where to post this, but here should be good enough. This contains some hints about the walls and humanity's history in SnK. This isn't spoilers since none of it has been talk about in the manga itself, but it might cause readers currently up to date on serializations to reevaluate their theories.

Quite an interesting read in either case.

Well this is interesting, it would explain many things especially how the bulk of the population knows so little about the walls and the surrounding lands.

You guys don't need spoiler tags, I posted this here for that reason!

It's possible, but this doesn't confirm if this a post apocalyptic earth or and alternate one. We do now however know that humans (along with their ancestors) that live in the Walled City aren't native to it.

Yep, however the people back then did seem to have known about a Walled City before-hand, I think we can speculate someone or something led them there to escape the giants.

Would the humans with their current level of technology be able to make hot air baloons?

It would be alot easier exploring outside the walls.

The author controls this world... any technology that could outwit and outsmart the Titans are non existence ever since the walls were built.....

Oh, that video. I had a huge grin when I watched it the first time, but I noticed later that his 3D gear handle/blade hilt is slightly off (and may be missing a couple triggers and levers).

I'll just link this instead of reposting.

Technologies

This series is one of the few shows that really captured my imagination. The world building is flawed enough to be realistic and thus interesting. But because of my nature of examining things, I often find myself saying "why don't they just..." in some events.

Some of my ideas here are categorized into 3 levels. Lvl 1- tech and objects that definitely exist in the world because they were shown to exist by the author. Lvl 2 are tech and object that we can assume are possible because of the existence of lvl 1's. Lvl 3 (to which my posts will be mostly about- because speculating is just more fun!) are things that may exist because of the Lvl 1 and 2 tech and objects.

If some tech or another does not show up in the series I chuck it up to a couple of things

1) They cannot produce it. Meaning they either do not have the materials to manufacture it or lost the knowledge to do so.

2) It was not terribly effective in their experience. This is more deductive reasoning, but some tech that to us would obviously work against titans, had been found to be ineffective. A bit of a grey area.

3) People being people simply overlooked the potential of some tech. This has happened again and again in history, gun powder for the Chinese was initially used in fireworks and was never used in war as extensively as it was in the west.

4) There is active suppression of some tech. The government may actively suppress labor saving devices to actually keep more of the population busy. Sort of like make-work in the military so the people don't get restless

5) The author flat out ignored it. The reason of last resort. Although flat out possible in a lot of cases this is the last thing I would think. There are typically better rationalizations than this.

Before I go speculating about what they could have in the series I'd like to clear things up a bit.

(I've only read the manga and I haven't seen the anime so I'm not exactly sure what the spoilers are and what's not. So reader beware! )

Some general assumptions on my part:
Spoiler for I only read the manga!:


Enough of that. Next post will be about what they can possibly have that is not too much of a leap from where they are now.

The issue of hot air balloons and other flying tech.

The lack of internal combustion engines in the series would immediately rule out even the most basic lawnmower gliders.

Even simple hang gliders seem to be difficult to make but not impossible with the lack of synthetic materials. The aluminum frame is somewhat sophisticated technology.

What would be interesting is if they combine the 3dm gear and hang glider tech. This would make for very maneuverable little aircraft that can launch itself into the air and then save the compressed air in the tanks, allowing scouts to cover a lot of ground with the relative safety of flight. With refinements, the scouts can probably constantly carry a folding personal hang glider on their person. This would make their existing gear more cumbersome but will make them less dependent on their horses.

The lack of parachutes is a glaring problem in the series. So much of the complex horse scouting maneuvers would be rendered obsolete. Even with the lack of synthetic materials, hot air balloons have carried passengers since the 1700's so an all natural construction should be simple to make. The lack of petrol shouldn't be an issue. The only down side of a hot air balloon observation post is that it has very limited ability to communicate with the people bellow. A simple flag signal language should be enough. or even a carrier pigeon system.

There also happens to be the possibility this isn't Europe.

Golden Witch on NF pointed out that a lot of things fit to a farfetched theorem about Atlantis.
