America is full of inventors, but none like Bob Partington. Each week Bob will receive three objects, all of them connected to America's innovative past. Bob's task is to use each of the objects in fun, never-before-seen inventions. Whether he makes an invention to help a stranger or a local business or devises something cool for himself, it's up to Bob to use the objects to carry on America's true spirit of invention.
Bob makes an invention for a Coney Island deli inspired by the area's world famous amusement park, and Bob's love of well-sliced pickles. And later Bob builds something to launch the first plane in 40 years off of the USS Intrepid.
