Some designs crash and burn, but others actually prove brilliant when given a chance. Whitehorse-born Macpherson is an amateur historian and special effects artist who has worked on films like X-Men and Chicago.Toronto's Hunter is a skilled carpenter and backyard inventor. Armed with blow torches and history books, they journey through the strange and entertaining world of invention, proving human beings will try to build just about anything.
