Set Your DVRs, History Hacker to Premiere Tonight
The History Channel continues to amaze me. What used to be a boring documentary channel is now appealing to younger and less history-obsessed audiences, making topics fun and interesting. In what should prove to be an exciting Mythbusters meets Historical Documentary series, History Hacker involves Bre Pettis of MAKE fame hacking together inventions out of history “from things in my closet,” he says.
The pilot episode airing tonight at 8pm on the History Channel seems to be focused around electricity and the inventions of Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla, including wireless electricity! It should be pretty cool to watch, and educational too. Check out the teaser trailer below:
