Abstract Professor Mark Miodownik's investigation into the complexities of modern invention concludes with an insight into how new materials enabled people to become curious about the world around them. He reveals the impact the advent of the bicycle had on the national gene pool, and highlights how the concept of levitation provided the spiritually inclined to set out in search of their inner self.
