This Profile On Shawn Thorsson Gives A View Into His Shop

Our buddy Shawn Thorsson recently got a fun profile done on him. As we sat watching, and drooling over Shawn’s fantastic work, we couldn’t help but think back fondly to when he made that massive ED-209 robot and documented it for us!

That’s a crazy amount of work in an insanely short amount of time. Only Shawn could pull off such a build in our opinion. Of course, we wanted to harness his knowledge and skill, so we got him to write a book!

If you’re wanting to learn how to do this stuff as well, you should probably get a copy.
