Engineering in the movies: Expert breaks down the good, the bad and the ridiculous

You ever see a movie and wonder if the amazing things on screen are remotely possible? Meet Michael Milford, a robotics professor who loves to dissect the science and tech in Hollywood blockbusters.

He takes a look at some – old and new – to see if the science and technology in them are vaguely plausible. Warning: There probably aren’t spoilers ahead, but he might shatter some hopes and dreams about how soon you can expect this tech to be out in the real world.

Any we missed? Let us know your favourite (or least favourite) science and tech from movies in the comments.
