Happy Chinese New Year! Stop by for “Ask an engineer” TONIGHT 10pm ET – 2/13/2010 tonight!
YEAR OF THE METAL TIGER
1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010 – Tiger people are sensitive, given to deep thinking, capable of great sympathy. They can be extremely short-tempered, however. Other people have great respect for them, but sometimes tiger people come into conflict with older people or those in authority. sometimes Tiger people cannot make up their minds, which can result in a poor, hasty decision or a sound decision arrived at too late. They are suspicious of others, but they are courageous and powerful. Tigers are most compatible with Horses, Dragons, and Dogs.
Topics will include:
MONOCHRON clock kit is finished, parts are on the way – you can pre-order during the show. The demand was so high from folks who could not attend last week we’re going to do this again. We also did not have a lot of time to answer questions, so we’ll spend more time this week on engineering questions. Clock and engineering Q&A – *this* is what Saturday nights are made of!
We will have a 10% off code for ADAFRUIT KITS during the chat and 10% pre-orders for the MONOCHRON clock. We’ll also have a give away and MOSFET THE CAT. Happy Chinese New Year!
Visit our new “chat” section on Adafruit at 10pm ET, Saturday nights
There will be a trivia question at the end of the night as always!
Lastly, if anyone can save a text log we’d appreciate it

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
