After attempting to climb through several different terrains in a regular ATV (quad-bike), the inventors realise that the wheels are not sturdy enough and cannot negotiate the many obstacles they come across in the wilderness. They must redesign the legs so they can withstand the weight of the aluminium chassis as well as the driver of the machine. After hours of gruelling tests of different materials, there is only one material that can support the weight while still allowing the vehicle to 'walk' over any surface.
The team of inventors takes-on the future of thrill rides by attempting to build a waterslide simulator that lasts three times as long as an amusement park waterslide while also combining all the twists, drops and turns of several slides into one simulator. The prototype grows to three stories tall with almost five tons worth of materials. Can the guys complete this engineering feat in only two weeks?
In the early '60s, to talk about computer science meant talking about enormous calculators that were seen as pure science fiction to the vast majority. In 1963 the IBM PDP-1 occupied an entire room, cost $100,000 and was in few specialised laboratories. And while the world dreams about and fears this object of the future, in that small lab with tainted black windows, four pioneers invented the P101, ''the first desk top computer of the world". This is the birth of our age.
