TV Watch Howe And Howe Tech at 10 p.m. on weekdays

Twin brothers Mike and Geoff Howe, along with their loyal team of mechanical wizards, design and build the coolest machines you’ve ever seen. They are best known for developing the world’s fastest dual tracked vehicle for the US Army — the Ripsaw can go from zero to 50mph in 3.5 seconds, turn on a dime, and scale a 30-ft 45-degree hill while only costing $ 1.5 million to produce. The twins’ ultra-mini tank — the Badger — secured a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for ‘Smallest All-Terrain Armored Vehicle’.

Discovery Turbo’s new series  Howe And Howe Tech  follows the two, as they stretch the limits of creativity and innovation by building ingenious off-the-wall machines with their crew. Each episode features a new, ingenious, and often insane machine. The episodes in the programme include ‘Badger Goes Boom’; ‘Subterranean Rover Blues’; ‘Ripsaw Revolution’; ‘Ripsaw’s Mini Me’; ‘Personal Assault Lander’; and ‘Badger Resurrected’. The programme airs Monday to Friday at 10 p.m.
