Patent Bending, Canadian Style

The Discovery Channel Canada's Patent Bending team has scoured patents from the past 100 years "to find the seemingly greatest, strangest or most fantastically odd ideas that never got off the page - then figure out why. Premiering Tues., Aug. 22 at 8:30 p.m. ET/11:30 p.m. PT, each episode identifies one idea and starts the process of bringing the invention to life. They build it, test it and they quickly figure out why it never worked." Episodes include:
  • “12-Gauge Golf Club”
  • “Bicycle Lawnmower” and
  • “Floating Tent”
