After years of building projects, testing designs, writing, and editing, MAKE: Soft Robotics is ready to hit shelves! It’s available on presale from Amazon and is scheduled to go live Dec 23.

Now that the Transmetropolitan Art Book has been out for a good long while, I’d like to show you my contribution to its majesty.
So, I started with some brainstorming sessions with some friends. The initial idea was to deface a WalMart with some black paint, sticking 3rd eyes on every goddamn smiley face we could find. That idea was quickly chucked out in favor of some kind of massive graffiti installation, trying to recreate a portion of the future San Franciscan landscape right here in good ‘ol modern day New York.Continue reading
A while back, I mentioned I’d be putting up a tutorial about my Pillow Mace project. Well, your prayers have been answered. I got in touch with someone from Make, and they mentioned they’ve got a new system for building tutorials. I figured I’d check it out.

I spent most of it bent double under the weight of hammering pillows. After about ten minutes of punishment I was deeply in need of an exitContinue reading
I’ve just opened up a store called Sleek and Destroy. I’m filling it with awesome, stylish, nerdy goodies. I’m starting out by releasing a new laser cut piece every week. Currently you can find a selection of jewelry featuring Guy Fawkes, the iconic symbol of the shadowy hacker group Anonymous, and some utterly incredible raptors. They’ll make you want to don a white suit, complete with Colnel Sanders beard, and found your own dinosaur island.Continue reading
