William H. and Janet G. Lycan Professor Bill Hammack has been entertaining and educating the masses since 1999. His YouTube videos and pieces for public radio have been seen or heard millions of times around the world. Make magazine called him a “brilliant science-and-technology documentarian” whose “videos should be held up as models of how to present complex technical information visually.” Wired called them “dazzling.” Scientific American’s blog called Hammack a “smart, easygoing every man with a firm understanding of the science.”

Hammack explains the simple and brilliant engineering behind a NERF blaster. He uses slow-motion video to show the ingenious design of a soda can tab. He demonstrates how fiber optic cables work, rips up a hard drive, explains the wonder of a quartz wristwatch, solves the mystery of black boxes, blows up a light bulb filament, and explains why you always seem to be in the slowest line. And much more!
