Craft & Design

Live from the The Henry Ford in Detroit, Make: Live episode 13 gives you a small taste of what you’ll find in the Motor City’s own incarnation of Maker Faire, the world’s largest DIY festival.

In this highlight, Greg Gage from Backyard Brains demonstrates their SpikerBox kit, which lets you experiment with cockroach neurons. Becky and Greg surgically remove a cockroach leg and listen to the neurons firing.
