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.
When Bob receives a box with three random items somehow related to one another, he and his team have to figure out what to do with each one. A hot dog roller machine reminds Bob of one of his favorite childhood past times.
