A Movie for Engineering Geeks?

Posted in Entertainment by Stacy McMahon on September 25, 2008

So Greg Kinnear and Lauren Graham are in a new movie about …the invention of the intermittent windshield wiper! The plot is a lot like ye olde “Detroit buries 100mpg carburettor” rumors, but is apparently a true story based around the seemingly incredible facts that a) somehow no automaker’s engineering staff was able to make an intermittent wiper work, while b) one guy in a college lab did it by himself. Anyone for a movie night? (trailer on the linked page)
