The website for today is a website that explains exactly how the things we often take for granted actually work.

From the telegraph to the Blackberry; from the toy kite to the B-1 Stealth bomber; from the internal combustion engine to the pair of the damn things they put in the monstrously beautiful Bugatti Veyron (?800,000, 253mph and 11 miles to the gallon? Whoa this site explains it all.

You will spend hours reading through the well-presented and meticulously researched articles and once you've finished one, you'll be clicking on the next. Fascinating and addictive in equal measure.
