“Mod God” Benjamin Heckendorn has become a celebrity in the world of engineering with his
Internet program watched by more than seven million viewers worldwide. With 77 episodes in the can and in
its third season, The Ben Heck Show--sponsored by Element 14--has shown engineers how to prototype more
than 50 of the most zany yet sought-after you-build-it projects in the history of engineering--from a
mailbox that tells you when it’s got mail, to robot luggage that follows you around the airport
At this session, engineers will gain insight into what it takes to make it through the prototyping process
alive as Heckendorn takes us on a perilous, yet strangely hilarious journey from concept development to
revision stage to managing the inevitable tug-of-war between client and engineer.
