The Problem Solver: Inventor Mike Kapp makes “invisible” things

Meet Mike Kapp, The Problem Solver, and an inventor of invisible clocks, automated cat doors, and machines that seem to write in the air. Anne Hollowday‘s short video series, The Makers of Things, documents projects and personalities behind of the Society for Model and Experimental Engineers, established in the UK in 1898.

Watch more makers from earlier generations — Shaped on All Six Sides, Bottled History, the Practicello, Irving Harper: Works in Paper, — and so many videos about how things are made.
