How Do They Do It 12

Image 1 / 10

People take for granted many of the objects which make up the modern world- like mobile phones, waterproof clothing, water and cement. These simple things are often the products of the most extraordinary, highly sophisticated engineering and production processes. As the modern world becomes progressively automated and mechanised, we grow further removed from the way things are made and how things are done, as we reveal in 'How Do They Do It?' our comfortable modern way of life relies on the problem-solving genius of engineers and the vision of industrial designers who are constantly striving to make things better. Each story takes us behind the scenes to show how to do the things and make the things that form the modern world and reveals the hidden stories behind our everyday lives.
