Introducing The Ben Heck Show!

I’m finally able to talk about my next super secret project and you’re the first to hear! I have a new internet TV show called The Ben Heck Show, sponsored by element14 and the first episode will be available next Monday, 9/13.

I’ll be taking your requests for build ideas as well as working on one big project which you’ll soon find out about. has been kind enough to power my show with plenty of tools and components to get all of my builds off the ground, and I’ve been filming every step of the way.

Stay tuned to this space to learn how you can submit ideas for future builds through my upcoming community on launching 9/13 as well. You can register there to get a head start and I’ll let you know when my community page is live this coming Monday.
