Why there’s more than just novelty to one young inventor’s air-powered Lego car

Armed with loads of imagination but limited means, the Romanian inventor Raul Oaida had, by the age of 21, made good on several far-out engineering ideas, including an air-powered car built from roughly half a million Lego pieces, and a small Lego spacecraft he successfully launched to heights of more than 20 miles. Made in conjunction with The Adaptors podcast, this short profile from the US director Flora Lichtman shows how Raul has made his wild dreams a reality using widely available resources, and how inventors like him could change the way we see innovation in the information age.
