I’m Simone Giertz, self-proclaimed Queen of Shitty Robots and DIY astronaut
HEY THANKS FOR ALL THE QUESTIONS! I have to wrap up because my hands are starting to feel like two tiny hamster paws, and also I need to edit DIY Astronaut EP 2. Pick your social media poison if you want more shitty robots: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube.
See you soon Reddit!!
Fricking excited to do my first AMA. I don’t want to go all cheesy on you but Reddit is where this journey started for me and how I got this -very- weird job. I owe you.
So about two years ago I started building robots and posting them on my YouTube channel and /r/shittyrobots. Today I’m a full-time inventor of useless machines and a host of Adam Savage’s Tested.com. I’m also, more recently, the founder of my own shitty astronaut training program. Because if nobody else will have you, just make your own thing.
Ask me anything!
