Bre Pettis with the latest MAKE video! – “In this video Pablos shows me two new materials that makers really need to be aware of. The first is shapelock, a material for making anything. The second material is neodymium, which is a rare earth magnet that defies gravity.
While talking with Pablos, I had a flashback to when I worked as an assistant at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. A mech named Flimsy and I would go troll the hardware stores looking for materials that we could apply to the animatronic gorillas we were making for the movie. One day, Flimsy turned to me in Home Depot and said, “There aren’t many new things in the world. You’ve got to make new things by combining old things.” I told this story to Pablos and he added, “And you always have to be on the lookout for new materials.” A big thank you to Pablos for sharing his passion for innovation!”
