From helicopters to sneakers to smoke detectors to chocolate, uncover the stories behind everyday objects and how they're produced. With informative, step-by-step instructions and detailed illustrations, you'll learn how: Smartphone screens are assembled in impeccably clean rooms with .5 micron dust filters to ensure perfection. The polyethylene fiber that makes up bulletproof vests was originally created for use in tires. A Czech scientist perfected the soft contact lens in his kitchen, producing 5,500 pairs with assistance from his wife. Transparent solar cells are being developed to coat windows, which will likely revolutionize solar energy in skyscrapers and other buildings.
