On this week’s episode, Gary buys a pool, Norm looks into the future, and Will shares some photos. All that, plus the latest on the new MacBooks, iOS 6, OSX Mountain Lion, and another episode of fake outtakes.
Adam Savage shows off one of his favorite tools in his workshop: his metal lathe. Learn what a lathe can be used to make, why its awesome power should be respected, and how Adam tweaked it by adding a DRO (digital readout).
Norm takes you behind the scenes of special effects pioneer Phil Tippett’s Mad God project. Phil, who worked on Star Wars, Robocop, and Starship Troopers, has been making the stop motion shot film for over 20 years. Mad God is his masterpiece, and this is a rare look at the models and props that Phil has collected over the years for the project.
Adam, Will, and Norm hang out in Adam’s workshop and discuss the many ways that you can get started making things.
We chat with Microsoft’s Peter Orullian about the newly announced Xbox SmartGlass technology at E3 2012. This is an app that will let you interact with games and video on the Xbox 360 from any smartphone, tablet, or PC, but is potentially much more than a remote control. Watch how it’ll work.
On this week’s episode, Norm is punchy, Gary ate a brownie, and Will is mostly out of frame. All that, plus everything we saw at E3, the future of Google Maps, AirTime, and another episode of fake outtakes. Enjoy!
We take you inside Adam Savage’s man cave, where visitors are greeted by a life size Tyrannosaurus rex skull hanging from the ceiling at eye level. You have permission to touch it for good luck!
