“It’s doing all the research, learning how to put it together, getting over the terror of these expensive components arriving in the mail, and you just plugging them in like adult Lego,” he added. “And then hoping you don’t blow up the house when you press the power button.

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on Global.
