Following his presentation of the “10 Commandments of Making” at the 2014 Bay Area Maker Faire, Adam Savage took a few minutes to chat with us on a variety of make-themed topics.

Always an interesting and entertaining conversationalist, Adam discussed his observations about the growth of the Faire, some of the inspiration he’s found from the exhibitors through the years, his thoughts on Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and other prototyping boards, the time-saving tools in his workshop, and the ultimate project he’s never built.

And of course, all this happened with him riding inside a metallic, fire-breathing dragon.

You have to love the magic of Maker Faire.
