Adam answers a question this week about at which point of a project he thinks about asking for help. It’s an important question, since asking for help is something Adam has been grappling with his entire life. How would you answer the same question? And of course, if you have a question or something you want to share with Adam, post in the comments below! We’ll be back next week!
Our very own Simone Giertz recently went on a trip to China, and reports on her visit from the famous Shenzhen electronics market! Simone explains what she found interesting about the marketplace, and shows off some of her finds from the trip!

This week, we chat about the wonderful world of Gundam and snapfit injection-molded plastic kits. That leads to a discussion about some of our favorite model kits from our childhood, and an appreciate for cockpit design. Plus, an appreciation for the recent achievements of SpaceX!
In this episode of Simple Feats of Science, we’re joined by Zeke Kossover from The Exploratorium to demonstrate an unconventional experiment with liquid nitrogen. Kishore and Zeke discuss some liquid nitrogen basics, and then show how you can use it to illuminate a broken light bulb!
Norm, Frank, Sean, and Danica finally complete the Gundam! There’s plastic everywhere in the office, but the effort was worth it–and now we just want to build more of these kits. Thanks to everyone who watched this week of build! We’ll be back next month with another project and special guest!
The intricacies of Gundam anatomy confound us as we get close to finishing this week’s build! We’re so close, but there’s still more to build. Electronics! Wings! Accessories! (Let’s finish off this build together by joining the Tested Premium member community!)
A simple yet essential shop tip from Frank’s shop today: covering your work tables with a big sheet of paper. Frank talks about what type of paper he uses and why it perfectly suits his projects and table dimensions. It’s time to paper up our tables!
Here’s a first for Adam: a One Day Build of a custom LEGO set! After spotting Jason Allemann’s beautiful automata design, Adam sourced a complete kit to built at the cave. The finished piece comes alive as an animated diorama of the Greek legend!
