Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
From the Wright Brothers to Steve Jobs to John Pembleton, who created Coca-Cola in a backyard kettle, it is often the common man inventing his dream that has changed history. In Invention USA, tech and science experts Riechart Von Wolfsheild and Garrett Lisi dedicate themselves to finding the "next great invention" in the mix of prototypes presented by amateur inventors. Whether they’re traveling the country to meet these backyard inventors at home, or having inventors present to them at their Los Angeles testing lab, Riechart and Garrett give a tough, no-nonsense evaluation of each invention’s potential. If they like what they see, they’ll offer an immediate investment to help bring the product to market. And if not, Riechart and Garrett pull no punches in describing why the invention has no promise. In every case, the stakes are high: a dream is on the line, often one that has been years and many thousands of dollars in the making.

Fun and intriguing
I'm so addicted
I wish there were more episodes! I'm completely hooked on this show.
This is good reality TV, it's funny, the drama feels genuine, and its well put together, but more importantly they make the case for their opening statement. As a country we are not done as a creative force in the world.
