Could you be bothered to brew leaf tea five times a day or fish the beans out of your morning coffee? Hidden Heroes shines the spotlight on the overlooked inventions we couldn’t live without.
The inventions are presented alongside original sketches and drawings by their inventors, patent specifications and original adverts.
The exhibition reveals the efforts made to establish each product, as well sharing quirky titbits of information such as Napoleon’s role in the evolution of the tin can and the connection between a descending plane and bubble wrap.
