James May's Big Ideas
16 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I liked the Top Gear presenter in the small documentary series 20th Century, so I decided to see what this small series was about. James May basically travels the world to find the newest forms of transport, robot technology and energy sources. The forms of travel episode sees hovering crafts, jet packs, a near flying saucer and a mini helicopter. The robots episode (the best one) sees a Disneyland walking robot (with slanted legs to stop it falling), a robot looking like the man who created "him", a robot who can identify objects with its own memory system, and a 3D imaging system where a replica James is made. And the energy episode sees solar panels on a car and outside, wind turbines, and a high heat machine making temperature like the sun, from pure air, easily burning a hot dog and melting steel. An interesting small series with a likable presenter and some good looking future technology. Good!
