About Tested

Tested pries into the stuff the internet loves, inspecting and trying out a range of nerd products from cameras to robots. Initially the brainchild of MythBusters’ Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, this YouTube channel has expanded to include technology reviewers Will Smith and Norman Chan, and releases a video every few days on new gadgets and toys (like the giant LEGO Millennium Falcon, and the crowdfunded Glowforge laser printer) and discussions on the state of consumer tech, vis-a-vis con visits, product releases, and—keeping with the MythBusters ethos—DIY techniques. Adam also visit scientists and creators around the world to see how they work.
