For his latest one-day build, Adam Savage and his Tested pals cheated a bit, spending a couple of days cutting, welding, and assembling a complicated walking machine inspired by the work of Theo Jansen. And you thought assembling IKEA furniture was tricky.
THE BEST Adam Savage
Director Peter Jackson showed Tested’s Adam Savage some cool CIA equipment from the ’60s – a disguise kit in a briefcase. It was made by the late make-up artist and prosthetics expert John Chambers, who’s known for his work on Planet of the Apes and Star Trek. And Argo.
As we already know, Adam Savage loves to dress up in complicated costumes and walk around conventions to see if he can avoid being identified. For NYCC 2016, he dressed as the delightfully rotund Totoro. We love how he squeezed through that doorway at 4:45.
Adam Savage made a life-size replica of one of the swords that Hellboy used in the comics. The 48″ sword is made of plywood, Bondo, carbon fiber tubes, aluminum tape, some spray paint and a plushie. You can skip to 26:37 for the finished sword and the post-credits time lapse.
Mythbuster Adam Savage spent nearly a month building this insanely detailed replica of the hedge maze model from Stanley Kubrick’s horror classic The Shining for his latest project on Tested. The work it took just to flock all the hedges is crazy.
