Make: Live 8/24/11 — Make Labs (video)

Episode 15 was live from Make Labs in Sebastopol, California. The interns show off projects from the magazine and their own creations, like Dan Spangler’s combustion cannon called “Big Bertha.”

Max Heald shows us his in-progress electric wheelchair robot, and Brookelynn Morris brings her LED hula hoop and puts the staff to the hula challenge.

Get a tour of the lab from Nick Raymond and meet more folks who make the magazine and projects you love.

    Awesome Cannon. Much nicer looking then the one I made as a kid. Really nice build.
