For the nerds among us, for the Mythbusters crowd, for those who like me sometimes find themselves missing Junkyard Wars and Battlebots, there is Make. This is a spinoff ofa nerd magazine that launched a coupla years back thikning they would reach out to the small base of modern DIYers, people who like to see what they can build from what there is to be had. The magazine was an unexpected blatant hit, becoming the Popular Mechanics/Electronics of the modern age. The show is a half hour magazine, mixing demonstrating what people make (giant flaming statues, pedal-powered amusement rides, whatever) with some how-to examples that are, frankly, a bit beyond what I would choose to do, but it’s still interesting to watch. This half-hour is airing at odd times on random PBS stations. Check it out — or watch it online.
