MAKE: TV

I’m so excited to share this: PBS is producing a new TV show called MAKE: and I’m going to be on it! I’m doing the Maker Workshop segment, which means I get to build a cool project for each episode and explain how it all works.

We filmed the first episode a few weeks ago at Twin Cities Public Television’s studios and it was great fun. They’re among the nicest, most creative people I’ve worked with. I just saw a preview edit and it’s looking fantastic.

It should be airing in January ’09. Here’s more info:

I had some cause to re-purpose and cannibalize a few VCRs recently. I love the way this one looks all pulled apart.

This tachometer/DC generator may come in handy. For what, I’m not entirely certain.

Feel the excitement as I open my TGIMBOEJ… The magenta thing on top is the log book for this box.

There are currently nine TGIMBOEJ boxes, the one I have is named Rangoon.

I’ll be posting some photos this weekend of my favorite contents, the junk I’m planning to keep and use for a project.

Then, it’ll be time to add my own junk and send it on its way to the next recipient.
