Style with Ease

Every few years someone comes along in the world of skateboarding and raises the bar on creativity, style and ability.  Here are three skaters that have, in my humble opinion, shifted the paradigm at certain points over the last 25 years.

I spend an unhealthy amount of time searching the web for new ideas and inspiration regarding circuit bending and instrument/video modifications.  Over time, I've stumbled upon a handful of people that are doing insanely original, mind blowing things with a dremel and a soldering iron.  Here are five people that are pushing the boundaries of what can be done with bent electronics in a basement workshop.
