Reveal the inner workings of the incredible machines all around us

In this eye-catching book, readers can explore the hidden inner workings of machines and inventions, from mundane objects such as toasters and bicycles, to cutting edge technologies such as pill-sized medical robots and super-fast maglev trains. Readers use the see-through ‘invention analyser’ to reveal elements hidden within – everything from wires and pipes to the magnetic and gravitational forces at work.

Accompanying text explains how these machines function, how they affect our daily lives, and the physical and chemical phenomena that enable them to work.
