Show and tell 10/1/2011 (video)… We might try to schedule show-and-tell’ers next week from specific circles we’ll make.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards

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.
Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
I’ve been watching the hangouts for a while now. I really hope Google improves on the toolset for hangout. They should be working with people like you to see where improvements can be made. Tools like have a person in charge of the hangout so you can mute everyone and then you can unmute as you go through the presentations. And a quick kick so you can boot the people without a project to show off.
And I really hope you don’t need to go to some kind of screening process to find out if people actually have a project for show and tell.
Maybe Google can add a feature for "watcher only" vs "potential presenter". I can see a lot of value in that for business applications as well.
Anyways, lots of cools stuff going on out there. Nice work everyone.
Would it be possible to not direct people to the hangout but rather to a page with two big idiot buttons, one saying “I have a project to show off” and another saying “I want to watch”? I don’t expect it would completely stop hangers-on but it might reduce the problem a little.
