Kaden Harris at Maker Faire

David Pescovitz, of MAKE and Boing Boing, talks to the “eccentric genius” hisself, Kaden Harris, in the MakerShed at Maker Faire. Kaden shows off a few of his crazed contraptions, some of which can be found in his book The Eccentric Cubicle. This episode also includes scenes from the Faire and Xeni asking people about their nerdly-hip t-shirts. Dang it: I wish I’d thought to show off my “Sacred D20” tee on camera. Oh, and Xeni gets royally tuned up by Jack Sparx.
