We’ve scoured the web (well, YouTube mostly) for the coolest engineering related videos we could find. Have you got your own favourite engineering videos? Please use the comment box at the end of this post to tell us what they are.
1. Damn cool mechanical presentation
A demonstration of MIT’s ASSIST sketch understanding system.
2. The biggest suspension Bridge
Today’s biggest suspension bridge was built borrowing ancient technology. This video shows how it happened.
For those who think everything should be made of metal or plastic – a fantastic “machine” built entirely from wood and glue. No nails and no screws. The fact that it is entirely pointless somehow makes it even more wonderous.
Some fantastic high-speed camera shots. Not all strictly engineering related, but well worth watching to see the dragster shots at around 2m30s. The deformation of the tyre is incredible as is seeing individual cylinders exhausting.
My passion for technology and innovation began as a teenager with Sinclair ZX80's, Commodore PETs & Apple ]['s. This became a career in software development, product development, team leadership, web development, and marketing. Now I am a General Manager responsible for growth, innovation, strategy & leadership. I gained an HND in Maths, Stats & Computing from Portsmouth Polytechnic in 1983 and completed an MBA at the University of Winchester in 2019 where I focused on innovation and strategy.
