Make, Create, Innovate is a new science and technology series that tells the stories behind the inventions and technological breakthroughs that are reshaping our world.
2.5 quintillion - this is the number of bytes of data we produce globally every day. The classic large server rooms we're used to seeing are no longer viable, so the race is on to find a way to store more data in less space.
Motion capture technology is revolutionizing myriad industries from entertainment to education, but its biggest impact has been in the movie industry and healthcare. We meet a pioneer of motion capture in the movies, Andy Serkis.
Make, Create, Innovate heads to Japan to explore perhaps the most inventive country in the world and meet the most prolific inventor in the world, Dr. NakaMats. The 88-year old scientist-turned-inventor has more than 3000 patents to his name including the floppy disk and the karaoke machine. After being diagnosed with cancer he is now trying to invent his way out of his illness.
We delve into the very heart of the Large Hadron Collider to meet the scientists behind one of the biggest discoveries of the past 10 years, the Higgs Boson, we explore how the science at CERN is spinning out into the wider world and get a sneak peek at their new focus - an enigmatic particle they think could unravel the mysteries of the universe.
We explore how technology is changing the way we design and construct the world around us. We explore how robots and artificial intelligence are ushering in a new era of computational architecture at ETH Zurich...
We explore what the future of getting from A-to-B might look like. We meet a Portuguese scientist developing technology that could allow us to control planes, trains and automobiles with just our minds...
In this edition of Make, Create, Innovate, you’re in for a holiday treat as Nick Glass brings you all the best bits from the past series. From self-aware robots to lasers that change the weather, it’s a show not to be missed!
We explore efforts to make roads safer – some 1.24 million people were killed on the road globally, according to the WHO in 2010. We look at an innovative spray that looks normal under daylight, but lights up like the fourth of July at night.
We explore a world mankind knows so little about - our oceans. We meet the inventor of the ExoSuit, the "Iron Man" of the sea, that's allowing divers, scientists and even archaeologists to explore the sea like never before.
We explore efforts to develop robots with artificial intelligence that mimics our own. We explore IBM’s secret research facility in California and meet the man behind their ‘brain-inspired’ microchip that could make all our computers work and think like we do.
