Appearing: Saturday, Sunday
Ian Charnas has two engineering degrees and legs that go all the way to the floor. Find Ian on YouTube to see him rollerskate with a jetpack, build a nuclear powered gameboy, hack his car so the wipers sync with his music, and cosplay Thor but with actual lightning. You can also win what you see in the videos because he raffles the inventions off for charity.

Creating The Improbable.
We believe in every single person’s ability to create the improbable and to learn about themselves and the world in the process. Like any artifact worth searching for, sometimes all it takes is a bit of digging in the right place to find your unique ability. We seek to aid in this endeavor.
At SiliCon with Adam Savage, our goal is to bring together people who have long histories of creating, from filmmakers and actors, to artists, authors, engineers, scientists, technologists, and makers to share their creativity and enthusiasm. We know that the sum of all this interaction is greater than its individual parts. We celebrate the spark we get when we meet new people, surmount new challenges, exult and share with each other.
