16×9 Episode “3D Printing: Make anything you want” (video)
Here’s a short but intelligently-covered snapshot of a few notable figures from the world of 3D printing on Canada’s Global TV show “16×9”. While this program only covers a few out of dozen of great figures from the field in is quarter hour, the solid interviews and level of discourse of the piece as a whole make it a model mainstream news teams should take note of.

Imagine a world where you can make anything you want, just by pressing “print”. 3D printers have arrived and they promise a fascinating future, depending on what we make.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
