Unchained Reaction

Image 1 / 10

Premiering as part of the ‘Incredible Inventions' season on Discovery Channel this May, ‘Unchained Reaction' is a brand new six-part series presented by Mythbusters' Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. Each week, two teams of varying backgrounds battle to build an elaborate chain reaction contraption. But they are not creating a mere string of dominoes - teams must utilize ingenuity, innovation and know-how to build contraptions on a massive scale. For ‘Unchained Reaction', teams made up of artists, rocket scientists, animatronic specialists and engineers are provided with identical sets of tools and materials and given five days to complete a series of mechanisms based on a specific theme. It's the ultimate build-off pressure cooker, where refined mechanical movements, pyrotechnics and large-scale destruction are encouraged. Making a refrigerator a pendulum? Totally possible. Catapults? Flying saucers? Guillotines? Anything goes as long as they trigger the next link in the chain.
