Geeky TV Program of the Month

My latest favorite TV program is BIG! on the Discovery Channel. A team of engineers and craftsmen create replicas of everyday machines, only that they are many times larger than the usual size. A machine is designed, engineered, assembled, built and tested in each episode. They re-created a giant cuckoo clock in the last episode. Previous episodes incude a big hair clipper, popcorn machine, barbecue grill… I got so sucked in to see them creating those huge components including gears, frames and motors. I get to see how these machines really work. The website lists out all the awesome machines they made and their specifications, with pictures, of course.
