Adam Savage's Hellboy Mecha-Glove Replica

One of Adam Savage's favorite movie props is Rasputin's mecha-hand from Hellboy. It's an elaborately machined prop that's only in the movie for a few minutes, and Adam has spent over four years painstakingly replicating it. Now that it's finally done, Adam walks us through all the individual components and how he fabricated each.

This 3D Printer Builds Full-Color Paper Models!

Traditional desktop 3D printers use melted plastic as their build material, but Mcor's printers layer sheets of paper on top of each other to create their models. We check out the new Mcor Arke, a printer that cuts from a large spool of paper, glues those sheets together, and then prints color on them to turn digital files into large paper models!

Building a Cooling Suit - Still Untitled: The Adam Savage Project - 8/12/2014

This week, Adam, Will, and Norm discuss the challenges inherent in cooling some of Adam's more elaborate costumes, including strategies from the audience, the viability of alcohol and dry ice as a heat sink, and the possibility of using off-the-shelf PC cooling parts to move heat out of a closed system.
