Adam sits down for an insightful conversation with award-winning makeup and hair designer Lesley Vanderwalt on the set of Alien: Covenant.
Sean and Norm use our office’s new Universal Laser Systems laser cutter to fabricate the first piece of Jen Schachter’s beautiful maker puzzle. Our office remix will use both wood and acrylic parts, and we discuss some safety protocols for laser cutting this kind of project.
We love this tiny arcade cabinet kit from the folks at Tiny Circuits. They’ve managed to put a powerful arduino board, memory, and display into a laser-cut cabinet that’s striking and charming at the same time. And it plays games!
Jack Turner is obsessed with Showbiz Pizza’s iconic animatronic robots. He and his father have scrounged up these old characters to restore them to their music-playing glory! We chat with Jack about his project and how he learned to rebuild these robots to animate the same way they did in the 80s.
We recall vintage board games and schoolyard snacks as this vintage car build comes to a finish–the stick application is nerve-wracking! Thanks to Trace and Danica for joining us this week on this fun build! Find more of Trace’s work at www.youtube.com/seeker
The Prusa i3 was one of the best reviewed 3D printers of the past year, and we check out their newest upgrade that allows for 4-color printing with just one hot end. Sean chats with Josef Prusa himself to talk about how multi-filament printing works and why it’s no easy feat.
It’s our 400th episode, which just happened to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. In this listener’s choice episode, we each recount our first Star Wars memories, look back at some TIOAT moments, and of course dive into this week’s pop culture, technology, and science news.
From underapprecaited 80s films to cult 90s flicks, we turn our talk to movies and video games in the third day of our LEGO build! We’re into bag three, and the details of the Beetle are looking good!
We attend our first virtual reality art show to try and understand how VR sculptures and paintings fit into a gallery setting, and chat with the makers of MasterpieceVR about their multiplayer VR art creation tool. Plus, we discuss the new PS VR game Farpoint and its use of the Aim tracked gun accessory!
