Congrats on a successful and historic liftoff @SpaceX @NASA #CrewDragon!!
Half an hour to go until today’s launch attempt. @SpaceX @NASA Good luck #CrewDragon! Watch live here:
Launch scrubbed for today due to weather, which was the right call. Safety first, of course. Next window will be Saturday, I believe! Good effort @SpaceX @NASA #Dragon Team!
Strap yourself into the @SpaceX Dragon capsule that will take @NASA astronauts to the @Space_Station Wednesday. Don't miss NASA & SpaceX: Journey to the Future tonight at 10pm ET!

Happy #MayTheFourth from me and #BabyYoda! I was lucky enough to work at @Lucasfilm_Ltd and @ILMVFX on #StarWars projects from 1993-2005. I look back on those years fondly and look forward to their plans for the future of the franchise. #MayThe4thBeWithYou #TheMandalorian
Show me your WFH space! Here’s mine: a bunch of electronics equipment on a foldout table. 😁K
This custom-made Baby Yoda animatronic deserves all the chicky chicky nuggs 😍✨s

And then, when I have to leave the house *for any reason* I feel like The Omega Man/I Am Legend.
During self-quarantine, does anyone else feel like the guy in the bunker in LOST? Blending a breakfast shake, riding his stationary bike, and working on the computer in total isolation?
If you were wondering how I built my Baby Yoda, this article has more detailed info and exclusive behind the scenes photos. Enjoy! #StarWars #TheMandalorian #BabyYoda…
Pleased to present my newest creation: a fully animatronic Baby Yoda. Special thx to @SaltiestHime for silicone skin/paint/hair, @thelindsayjane for the coat and Project 842 for the digital model. Touring children’s hospitals starting in April! #BabyYoda #TheMandalorian #Starwars
Used gaffer tape as a lint roller before a big pitch meeting. How’s your Monday going?
At @Disneyland at the crack of dawn to try and ride #RiseOfTheResistance. Is there such a thing as a breakfast churro? If not, there should be.
Finally the project I worked on will be making its way to Disney California Adventure!! You’re going to see something you’ve never seen before in a @Disney park: NO STRINGS…
Large jolt last night in LA. As an engineer and mechanical designer, this is terrifying. via @bonniegrrl…
Congrats @SpaceX on a successful in-flight launch escape test! Testing for failure is an important step.…
Taken on the steps of the Main House
Oooops, typo. That picture is indeed from Summer 1992. Yeah, I’m that old.
My office was on the second floor of Carriage House and I had a lab in the basement for blowing up (testing) THX audio equipment
The fitness center was brand new. There were no grape vines yet at the Tech Building for making wine. The Inn hadn’t been built yet.
In those days, lunch at the Main House was a buffet and you gave them your name and they deducted like $5 a meal from your paycheck.
Lucasfilm summer intern class of 1993
This reminds me of when I was a wee intern at Lucasfilm in summer of 1992. The Archive tour was on the very first day, right after orientation. So many great memories.
The #innovation process has one last step, and it’s a big one. In episode 4 of #EngineeringBigIdeas we watch @grantimahara tour contract manufacturer VSE and discuss the process of executing a final product. #manufacturing

The Witcher is the perfect show for anyone who misses GoT but also Hercules and Xena.

Also me: I’ll just play one game of Age of Empires II... [THREE DAYS LATER] ...Just. One. More. Game.
Looking forward to getting back into my shop. These two have been patiently waiting for me to finish them. Now if I can just not get distracted...
I did all the miniature lighting on the @starwars Federation Battleship and you can actually stick your hand in the cargo bay. It goes back about 12” or so. It’s all tiny incandescents and cold cathode fluorescents. Back before color changing LED strips were invented!…
Episode 3 of #EngineeringBigIdeas is out and this time we find out how to bring a product to market with @crowd_supply.…
Best thing I heard recently: There’s no such thing as foolproof. You can make it fool *resistant* but fools are surprisingly creative.
For this episode, I travel to Milan and go inside the #Arduino factory to meet with founder @mbanzi and talk about prototyping and the history of this amazing device.…
First, Atlas the robot backflipped. Then, it could do parkour. Now, this @BostonDynamics machine can do a gymnastic routine. It's ... evolving 😅

So sorry to hear about Jessi. She was a talented builder and host, and above all, a go-getter.…
And for anyone wanting more information about the game changing hydrogen-powered semi trucks featured in the episode, the *correct* username is @nikolamotor
Proud to announce my new series with @MouserElec where we explore innovation, design, prototyping, and manufacturing. We call it #EngineeringBigIdeas and the first episode follows @Nikolamotors and their hydrogen-powered semi trucks:…
I’m in Milan filming new secret content for @MouserElec. Got a day off to visit the Leonardo da Vinci museum. Did not know he designed a mechanical lion robot. And now I am imagining a da Vinci Voltron.
Did you know women aren't traditionally allowed to be sushi chefs? #FoodieFam @LanaMcKissack joins #Mythbusters' @grantimahara & #WarriorMAX's @diannedoan to explore that "myth" in the latest episode of our @stage13network series #FamilyStyle. Watch here:…

Recently collaborated on an awesome piece with some awesome people for #AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth. #APAHeritageStory…
I’m making prototypes of “specialty equipment” for a client. I know I’m on the right path when everything I buy to dissect has features specifically designed to *prevent* me from exactly what I’m doing.
Voiding warranties and defeating safety features for work. Again.
Doing a run through in VR with @KariByron & @ToryBelleci for our #MultiConVR Festival panel tomorrow at 10am on @HighFidelityVR. Join us! It’s FREE and you don’t need #VR. TICKETS: #Mythbusters
We’re going to do a revolutionary VR panel next weekend!…
Best of luck to @NASA @SpaceX and Ripley, the spaceflight test dummy. I have a long history with test dummies, so this launch is close to my heart.…
The recent snow in Los Angeles was caused by an unprecedented cold snap and had absolutely nothing to do with a protype weather-altering machine which I may or may not be working on.
