Secret Life

If you're even a bit of a tech geek, you need to check out The Secret Life of Machines.

I remember seeing some of these shows on the Discovery Channel quite a while ago. The simple, but informative, presentation added to the quirky allure. Other than the presentation and animation, what stands out in my mind is some of the facts. For example, the fax machine was invented around the same time as the telephone, and a switch used in the washing machine has another use in stunt driving, which they show by setting up a demonstration with a real car. Fun Stuff.

Since I watched these shows about the same time as Connections, the two are loosely linked in my memory.
