Series putting science to the test. Jem Stansfield builds a vortex cannon, and Dallas Campbell takes on the technology that will track every one of us simply by the way we walk.

In the series that puts science to the test, the team demonstrates cutting-edge developments in technology, and explains scientific principles that govern the world around us.

Jem Stansfield builds a vortex cannon to try and achieve what the big bad wolf could not: blowing over a house of brick; Dallas Campbell takes on the big brother technology that will track every one of us simply by the way we walk; Liz Bonnin confronts the controversial US scientist working to create the first generation of artificial life; and Dr Yan Wong tackles unsuspecting shoppers with a simple question: how do you cook an egg with a piece of newspaper?
