Here is a collection of the first eight of our weekly “Community Corner” videos that we created to introduce the world to the activities on our Google+ Community — as well as to celebrate things we love back with the community itself.
And a special thanks to Adafruit’s very own Tom (Bartlebeats) who provided all of the music!
#1 Color organ on the Adafruit Google+ community! #communities:
We’re loving the cool projects makers are sharing on the Google+ community @ Adafruit!. Here’s a color organ made with LEGO Mindstorms!
#2 Making Cheddar in the Adafruit Google+ Community:
Here is a video featuring a recent project from Google+ Adafruit community. We celebrate science, technology, engineering, math and art — and here’s a great food technology how-to! Featuring “Farmhouse Cheddar” by Michael Kirkland.
#3 Cosmic Ray Detector in the Adafruit Google+ Community:
Earlier this week, a curious video was shared in the Adafruit Google+ Community by Robert Hart featuring an intriguing flicker of lights. Following Robert’s link, it was an 81 Pixel Hodoscope, an instrument for detecting cosmic rays (muons)! Here’s a video discovering Robert’s project at the Adafruit Google+ Community — all filled with exciting projects appearing there every single day.
#4 Art Robots in the Adafruit Google+ Community:
Pete Prodoehl posted about his art robots on the Adafruit Google+ Community. Read more about them here!
#5 ULN2803 Driver Chips in the Adafruit Google+ Community:
This week on Community Corner, we used the “search” function within the G+ Community to see all of the recent tutorials our community members have been creating and sharing about the ULN2803. Take a look at some videos and posts from Matt Heilman, Sylvain Leroux, and William Foster — and dive into the conversation yourself!
#6 Dining Room Thrust Test for Printed Propellers in the Adafruit Google+ Community:
This week on Community Corner, we stumbled on a great “dining room thrust test” shared by Ben Harber. He used a custom rig to test the thrust potential for a series of 3D printed propellers he had produced. We enjoyed watching him engage in science — and share his updates as he analyzed his data. We wish him well with his project!
#7 How to Share An Event in the Adafruit Google+ Community:
This week on Community Corner, we show how to create an event listing on the Adafruit Google+ Community. We are starting to put our Ask An Engineer and Show & Tell events announcements up there each week — and will add a bunch of other local, regional, and national events there that our community has been requesting.
#8 An Afternoon Stroll Through the Adafruit Google+ Community:
There is always something exciting going on in the Adafruit Google+ Community. Come visit and share something you are working on!
We’ve been having a lot of fun sharing these experiences with all of you — and look forward to doing more in the future!
Each week on Community Corner, we share something we have enjoyed the previous week on the Adafruit Google+ Community site “Makers, hackers, artists & engineers: Learning and sharing with Adafruit!” (Note: Google+ login required.)
