MAKE Asks: is a weekly column where we ask you, our readers, for responses to maker-related questions. We hope the column sparks interesting conversation and is a way for us to get to know more about each other.

This week’s question: If you could choose anyone, living or dead, to collaborate with on a project, who would it be, and what would you make?

I would build an off-grid house with the late physicist Richard Feynman. Not only is this project a life-long dream of mine, but I would be fascinated by observing Feynman’s approach to a project in which he doesn’t have aptitude. He was known for bravely picking up new skills throughout his life (painting, bongo playing), and I feel this would be no exception.
