Ben Heck

Host The Ben Heck Show
  • Steven Osborn


Benjamin Heckendorn is the host of The Ben Heck Show ( ), sponsored by element14. Throughout his career, Ben has been a graphic artist, video editor, pinball machine designer, book author, console modder, and hardware hacker. Most famous for turning regular console gaming machines into portable versions of their former selves, Ben finds creative new ways to reinvent and repurpose hardware. In true maker fashion, he is also the only person I interviewed who paused on occasion to grind on the project he was working on.
