Adam Savage visits Aardman Animations’ workshop to get up close with some of the beautiful stop-motion animation puppets used in the studio’s upcoming film Early Man.

Kishore recruits the help of our very own Sean Charlesworth to show us how to put together a Foldscope–a D-I-Y microscope kit made for home use. We put a few interesting things under the lens of this microscope to test how well it works!
Our weekly show covering the fast-developing world of virtual and augmented reality technologies is back! To kick off 2018, we visit HTC’s San Francisco office to try the HTC Vive Pro headset, a surprise announcement at this year’s CES that improves video resolution, audio quality, and ergonomic design. Here’s how it compares with the original Vive.

Simone’s latest project is a surprise holiday present for her mom: a necklace designed to evoke an audio waveform. First come prototyping in plastic, but we head off-site to make the final piece out of milled metal!
Norm brings a new art piece to the office for today’s build: the playfield of a 1992 Data East Star Wars Pinball machine! Using a lighting kit that Jeremy helped design, we wire up the back of this playfield to bring this classic game back to life!
