Episode Description

The Buzz 1: “In the 19th century, inventors were heroes … Their ideas helped drag humanity from agrarian poverty to manufactured plenty. These days, though, inventor-superstars, while not absent, are fewer and farther between.” [economist.com] The Buzz 2: “While we've had our fair share of inventive breakthroughs in the past that have changed the world, the dazzling and world-shaking inventions of the future will change the world in even stranger and greater ways.” [bigthink.com] The Buzz 3: “There’s a way to do it better … find it.” [Thomas A. Edison] The Buzz 4: Professor Philip Brainard [played by Robin Williams in Flubber, 1997 American sci-fi comedy], a mad scientist developing a new energy source to save his college from closure, accidentally creates a sentient green goo substance with enormous elasticity and kinetic energy that bounces and is difficult to control. His robot assistant Weebo classifies it as "flying rubber” aka "Flubber". We’ll ask modern inventors Veronica Vargas, Pat Daily, Tammie Sykes and Carol Novello for their take on Your Great Idea: The Future of Inventors, Inventing and Technology.
