Colin Furze: inside the mind of an inventor

3 minutes

Meet eccentric DIY tech innovator and world record holder Collin Furze

A wry blue-collar mad scientist from Lincolnshire in the UK, Colin Furze tinkers in his garage making his strange whims a practical reality, constantly striving to create something bigger, faster and more bizarre than what came before it. It’s all a bit of a lark, but underneath the fun is a simple and powerful notion: as Furze says: ‘If we helped people out all the time,’ the way he now gets help from his neighbours and acquaintances, ‘God knows what would get made and done.’
