written by Bill Hammack
This website features a collection of YouTube videos developed by author/engineer Bill Hammack to explain various technological marvels. Watch as Bill tears down a hard drive, dissects an LCD monitor, delves into a quartz wristwatch, blows up a light bulb filament, explores a fiber optic cable, and constructs a replica of the first transistor ever built. The site also acts a repository of the radio interviews that the author hosted at Illinois Public Media's morning and afternoon talk shows.
