Turn an iPhone Into a Macro Camera, Visit a Nuclear Reactor Run by Students and More with Tested.com


When they’re not busting myths on the Discovery Channel, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage are busy cooking up great DIY projects and keeping up to date on the latest achievements of the world’s best makers.

Here’s some of the latest from Tested.com:

Recently, Adam had the opportunity to read the script for Quinten Tarantino’s latest project Django Unchained. In this video, he talks about why he was called in for a reading and what he learned about the highly-anticipated film from the script.

Then, the founder of one of the Internet’s biggest space communities talks about memorabilia, artifacts of Apollo and Coca-Cola cans that work in space.

Meanwhile, the expert Makers on the Tested team breakdown a $2 lazer pointer to optimize an iPhone for macrophotography.

Finally, Tested takes a trip to Reed College in Portland, Oregon. In addition to claiming Steve Jobs as an alum, this small school has another notable distinction: It’s home to the world’s only nuclear reactor operated entirely by undergraduate students.
