Go on a journey to meet the pioneers of material science and their extraordinary discoveries!

At the edge of the Arctic Circle, the first real cyborg has a bionic arm
connected directly to his nervous system. In the changing climate of the
Mediterranean, a material with printed, natural proteins promises energy-free
clean water for farmers in Crete. In Europe, the limits of materials technology
are discovered and pushed, the first 3D-printed violin is built, and a
demonstration of a self-healing, adaptive material demonstrates the power of
material science.
From our earliest tools to today's implanted bionics, the history of human
civilization is a history of its materials. Today, more than ever, we need to
use materials intelligently to meet the challenges of tomorrow. In this film,
we journey to meet the pioneers of material science and learn about
extraordinary discoveries within their field-a field that is going to continue
to define the next century of human history.
