    The most ridiculous spectacle to ever grace the Engadget stage at CES is over. But you can relive the magic of the Engadget Challenge right here.

    We spend much of our modern lives exploring the world through other people's social media accounts. You may have never been to the Grand Canyon, but your friend's Instagram feed makes it feel like you've seen it all anyway. While you can experience the places and things via social media, the question is can you be an active participant. Can you actually accomplish something through the eyes and hands of another? We seek to answer that very question in our first episode.

    After being laid off from his tech support job in the financial industry, Terrence decided to pursue his dream of working from home in his underwear. Through persistence and a lot of dumb luck, he eventually landed his first writing gig with the now defunct Switched. Since then he has continued to hone his craft while letting his more technical skills atrophy, eventually landing at Engadget. When not planted firmly in front of his laptop, Terrence can be found wandering the forests and mountains of the greater New York area with things strapped to his back that don't have an LCD screen.
