Have you ever wondered…
How fireworks reach a precise height, explode at the right time, and then paint the sky with specific colors and patterns?
What makes an airbag inflate faster than the blink of an eye?
Or what it takes to convert an average street bike into one that can dominate in the grueling Tour de France?
Well, ENGINEERED has all of the amazing answers to these questions – and many more, some of which you may never have even thought to ask!
Each one-hour episode of ENGINEERED takes curious viewers on a fast-paced and fact-filled adventure into the world of product design, manufacturing and testing – a world where traditional assembly lines collide with cutting edge technology to shape, forge, weld or build the objects we encounter in our everyday lives.
Whether it’s as complex as an automobile constructed almost entirely by robots, or as simple as a golf ball designed for optimal aerodynamics, each episode of ENGINEERED features three familiar objects. While these objects may seem pretty ordinary, the story behind them – the challenges of their design, the machines that make them, and the tests that ensure they work – will definitely surprise you.
Our guide for this unique insider’s tour is Marshall Brain – best-selling author, founder of legendary website www.howstuffworks.com - and an expert when it comes to explaining things. Marshall’s natural curiosity and real-world knowledge make even the most mind-bending mechanics and science entertaining and easy to understand.
Go beyond the everyday nuts and bolts of an object and find out how some of the most fascinating things in life are ENGINEERED.
