Classic Cars restoration Spyker 1906

The Spyker was constructed in 1906 in amsterdam after which it was shipped to paris, where it was stayed until circa 1960. After which the car was moved to frans guyana (neighbour of the suriname) where it was lost until car collector Stijnus Schotte got a tip of it's location and bought it. In July 2012 was the car first publicly shown at the Concours D'elegance in the netherlands after which Andries Jans bought it to be restored and displayed at the next Concours D'elegance in 2014. Only 2000 of this car model were constructed of which only 14 of which the location is known of. Filming and editing by Wim Burghout

1911 Triumph Starting

A Triumph Motorcycle made in 1911. It has not been started for 10+ years and this is a video of the antics required to get it to run for the first time. My Grandfather Thomas owned it until 1945 and now it is back in the family.

Top 10 Biggest Design Errors Engineers & Architects Made

Designing things is hard. You must go to school for years doing un-fun things like math and physics to become qualified to build most things professionally. And because humans are humans and not calculators, mistakes are bound to occur. In this video I’ll show you 10 bizarre and noteworthy examples of these human errors.

Benz Patent-Motorwagen No.1 in Action

29. Januar 1886 An diesem Tag hat Carl Benz den Patent Motorwagen Nummer 1 Patentieren lassen welcher bis heute als erstes alltagstaugliches Automobil gilt. Dieser Motorwagen ist ein originalgetreuer Nachbau. Ein paar Fakten: Leistung: 0,90 PS/662 W bei 400/min Hubraum: 954 cm³ Gewicht: 265kg Höchstgeschwindigkeit: 16km/h Verbrauch ca.10l/100km January 29, 1886 On this day, Carl Benz patent motor car number 1 Patenting leave which is still regarded as the first automobile for everyday use. This motor car is an exact replica. A few facts: Power: 0.90 hp / 662 W at 400 / min Displacement: 954 cc Weight: 265kg Maximum speed: 16km / h Ca.10l consumption / 100km

I got to drive the world's first car (replica), patented by Benz in 1886

This video is sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, who invited me to come to Stuttgart to see their latest cars, crash test facilities and experience the innovations they are working on.

Physics is something that is directly applicable to car safety. Cars go fast, but they also sometimes collide with obstacles, which brings them to a sudden stop, subjecting the car and occupants to very high accelerations, which can cause injury or death. So the major idea to improve car safety is to reduce these accelerations and there are a number of ways to do this:

Passive safety:

Seat belts: keep passengers in the vehicle, preventing them from continuing with constant velocity, flying through the windshield and suffering a worse deceleration when they make contact with the road.

Crumple zones: increase the distance over which deceleration occurs, thereby reducing peak magnitude of deceleration.

Air bags: increase the distance over which the head decelerates, again reducing peak magnitude of deceleration of the head.

Active Safety:
Anti-lock braking system: rather than 'locking' the wheels as can happen if you slam on the brakes with a traditional braking system leading to the tires skidding across the road, ABS attempts to control the amount of braking so that the tires always roll with static friction in contact with the road. This increases the backward frictional force that can be applied to the tires, again increasing the distance over which deceleration occurs, and it gives the driver an opportunity to steer to avoid the collision (hence why it's referred to as an active safety system).

Special thanks to Mercedes for having me visit facilities in Stuttgart. I had a lot of fun making these videos so please do check out the series on Mercedes Benz's channel:
