“We continue to explore the ingenuity behind engineering and manufacturing while introducing a new group of this generation’s science vanguards,” said Marc Etkind, general manager of Science Channel. “It’s a great time for Science Channel as we fuel the brand with mind-blowing content.”
Structured in the spirit of a home installation guide, each half hour episode of HOW TO BUILD… EVERYTHING breaks down the step-by-step process behind some of the world’s most complex apparatuses in a way that armchair engineers and curious minds can follow. From an Apache helicopter to a hovercraft, a cruise ship or a satellite, each episode features three machines as part of a tongue-in-cheek instruction manual.
The first season will walk audiences through how to build a state-of-the-art laser-guided cow milking machine, your very own 20-story cruise ship, a tandem vibratory roller aka steam roller aka a cartoon bunny-flattening machine, and a ton of other mind-blowing engineering marvels.

Who are or were the guy and girl scientist on the show that did demonstrations in the lab? How to build: Everything!
Regarding the episode: “How To Build A Superbike”. OEM does not stand for “Original Equipment Motorcycle”, as reported in the episode. The “M” in OEM stands for “Manufacturer”. Sorry, I’m nitpicking, but these shows are often watched by children, who may not know that TV shows are often inaccurate.
I’m paraplegic and have a few older power chairs in the garage. I’d love to have a personal off road chair for the beach and such. Might be a great idea for a show

There is a 700 page book, with 450 pictures called ‘On a Cushion of Air’, (available through Amazon and Kindle), which tells the story of Christopher Cockerell’s discovery that heavy weights could be supported on a cushion of low pressure air, and the development of the hovercraft by those who were there, from the very early days through to the heyday of the giant 165-ton SRN.4, which crossed the English Channel starting in 1968 carrying 30 cars and 254 passengers at speeds in excess of 75 knots on a calm day. It was subsequently widened to carry 36 cars and… Read more »
