Click, Print, Gun: The Inside Story of the 3D-Printed Gun Movement

  Being a 3D-printing novice, I was once somewhat skeptical of the promise behind what’s being billed as a truly game-changing technology. I saw Makerbot CEO Bre Pettis on the cover of Wired in late September, and while the novelty of the process incited wonder in my inner 10-year-old, I...
The Gut-Wrenching Saga of Shoenice

The Gut-Wrenching Saga of Shoenice

This was made for the VICE Original Youtube Series My Life Online. Original Text by Dan Stuckey. _ Bottles of cleaning fluid and painter’s caulk usually have their own fair share of fatal warning stickers, which is why I’ve never been to the ER for an eating-related stunt. But that...
First Animal to Survive in Space

First Animal to Survive in Space

Watch my ep of Spaced Out! Mike Shaw is a quiet unassuming man in love with the wilderness. He also knows far more about tardigrades then almost anyone. These microscopic creatures, whose name comes from the German for “slow walker,” and who are sometimes called “water bears,” after their bear-like...

The Story of Karl Welzein, According to @Dadboner Creator Mike Burns

For some reason or another I have always held a great amount of respect for Michigan. Somehow, that led to me following Karl Welzein of Grand Blanc, WI, née @dadboner, just to get my Rust Belt kicks. His tweets–like “Starbucks acts like they’re so fancy. You sell hot black water and muffins. Calm down.” and “Never understood why...

New Spaced Out: The Space Composer

I am not someone who has a background in science. While it always intrigued me it was not something that ever came innately. Working at Motherboard has helped me redefine the somewhat nebulous notion of science and what application it has in real life. In producing the second season of Spaced Out, it seemed important...

The Man who Hunts Spy Satellites

The Paris episode of Spaced Out is out. See my original text here: Thierry Legault is not your average amateur astronomer, inviting the kids over and pointing a dinky backyard telescope at the Big Dipper. He’s a renowned astrophotographer, painstakingly chronicling the orbits of planets, distant galaxies, spaceships, and—to the chagrin of the intelligence community—of...

The Taxidermy Babe

The Taxidermy Babe – VICE YOUTUBE – Fringes I have never been much for hunting. It seemed a bit too callous to go to the woods just to trap a living, breathing animal, especially for art. And then I met Divya. Divya is an artist, designer and taxidermist living in Brooklyn who cut her teeth...
