Making everyday a good day to DIY hard, live and in 360.

Wonder Spawn is a lifestyle and entertainment brand for makers, tinkerers, DIY enthusiasts and curious minds. Launched by Motortrend / Discovery TV personality and VR creator, Rachel De Barros, it’s home to her popular Gearhead Diva series along with other social programming in the home, auto, tech, shop and science genres.

Unleash your inner MacGyver with projects and tutorials that mix traditional crafts like wood- and metal-working with tomorrow’s mechanics and technology to create inventive, homemade solutions using widely available materials, upcycling found items and basic tools you already have. Our hosts aren’t actors! Like Rachel, they’re passionate enthusiasts and skillful experts that don’t put the tools down after the shooting is done. Making is what they do for a living!

We understand that the Maker Movement is a global phenomenon impacting the future of work, product development, education and entertainment. Fans are changing the way they consume content and we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of that change. From share-worthy social videos and live streams with real-time interaction to immersive 360 VR experiences, we’re crashing through the screen to transport viewers directly into the action to watch projects come to life in first-person view or even make decisions that alter the course of the project with our interactive storylines.
