NOVA: Making Stuff Wilder

What happens when engineers open up Nature's toolbox? In WILDER, David Pogue explores bold new innovations inspired by the Earth's greatest inventor, Life itself. From robotic "mules" and "cheetahs" for the military, to swarms of robotic bees, Pogue travels the world seeing the "wildest" ideas put into action in new inventions and technologies. It is a journey that sees today's bacteria turned into tomorrow's metallurgists, viruses building batteries and even DNA, the Code of Life, put to work in "living" computers. Will the "stuff" of the future take on a life of its own?
