Richard Hammond’s Crazy Contraptions

Richard Hammond's Crazy Contraptions

Richard Hammond hosts the new fun engineering competition – where some of the country’s most inventive engineers make teams to compete to create crazy contraptions that perform ordinary household chores in extraordinary ways. This time, three amateur pilots take on a team of stunt fans in a challenge to build a machine that will allow Richard to feed his dog without leaving his desk. With a place in the semi-finals at stake, the rival teams let their imaginations run wild – and even spy on each other’s work in a bid to get ahead. Chain reaction machine guru Zach Umperovitch is the expert judge; and Shini Somara fills in the science behind the eccentric contraptions.
