The Workshop of Model Maker Adam Savage @ WSJ.com…

Last June,Adam Savage and his wife, Julia Ward, fell in love with a four-bedroom, Edwardian house on a quiet street in the eclectic Mission district. But before he could close on it, Mr. Savage had to build it.

Build a model, that is. Borrowing blueprints from their real-estate agent, he constructed a replica out of white foam-core in half dollhouse scale, even making little models of himself and Ms. Ward from cut-outs of photographs and mounted like game pieces. “I built it so we could obsess over it,” Mr. Savage said on a recent Saturday, wearing orange-and red-striped socks that played off his signature red hair.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

    I have such a man crush on Adam Savage. I’m sure most people have see his talk about his obssessons, but if you haven’t – it’s worth it.

  2. Pool table? Where there could be a test stand/workbench? Waste of space!!!

    ‘course I covet it. Who wouldn’t?
