You’ve probably caught wind of a show in the works, hosted by amazing hardware modder Ben Heckendorn. The show has finally launched, on element14, and it’s pretty cool. In this first episode, Ben builds an Xbox controller for a one-handed gamer and starts in on an Xbox 360 laptop, a “Big Build” project he’ll work on over multiple episodes. Viewers can write in with build requests.
