If you’re like us the answer is probably not that much!

For example, did you know that electrical pulses from the brain can make bionic hands move? Or that microwave ovens cook food using light-waves, just like what we see with our eyes?

Luckily we’ve got a cool series packed with all these interesting facts, called Techno Mum.

Techno Mum will be looking at the ideas and engineering behind the gadgets.

You never know, it might inspire you to invent the next must-have thing.
