Summary

The humoristic Strange Inventions series revisits the film archives of the ONRSI, the CNRS's ancestor by exploring fake advertisements staging real inventions. The second episode presents an unsinkable swimsuit which prevents bathers from drowning and an inflatable warehouse, both sturdy and transportable.
