A highly visual and immersive series that deconstructs technology and brings it to life with spectacular results. The world is full of cool things we’d all love to get our hands on. From fire suits that withstand two thousand degree flames, to robots that destroy bombs with powerful water canons, to flight simulators that you can only dream of, this is the territory of Cool Stuff: How It Works. In each episode a vast range of imaging techniques from macro lenses, MRIs, X-rays, ultrasounds, scanning electron microscopes to high-speed and thermal cameras brings the invisible world to the screen in high definition.
