The game site Polygon did a really nice profile and video mini-doc on our pal (and MAKE contributor) I-Wei Huang. I-Wei is best known in MAKE circles for Crabfu Steamworks, his steam powered robots and other cool creations that he bodges together in his spare time. In the gaming world, I-Wei is best known as the chief character and toy designer for Skylanders, the wildly-successful video game and toy line. In this video, I-Wei shows off both his Crabfu creations and talks about his creative and design process around Skylanders. We also learn more about how I-Wei and company use 3D printing technology in their design process. There’s a lot to love in this profile, not the least of which is that awesome T-shirt I-Wei is rocking’.
