Madehow.com provides very detailed info about how various products and items are made and manufactured. Having an Instant Answer for this data seems like it would be really useful and fun.

How much info would the search return? I see they have a brief summary and then a detailed page for each item.

It could return a single paragraph w/ a link to read more. For example, wiki's currently do that. For this, we'd want to identify which parts of the articles are most valuable as an instant answer. Maybe the "Manufacturing Process" section of each article is a good place to start.

Also, right now it returns the first sentence of the article, per the fathead guidelines. However, I think it should include a little more. On the site they have a nice little synopsis for each entry that I think would be perfect.
