#3DxRobotics – Jaidyn Edwards of Duino-Robotics #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Jaidyn shares his helpful robotics and Arduino tutorial videos to the Adafruit Community (as well as elsewhere) and I have enjoyed watching a number of his how-to-make-your-robot resources over the past year.

Here’s what Erin has to say about Jaidyn: “Jaidyn has posted many great intro to robotics videos on YouTube, really worthwhile to watch a few and subscribe. Recently he built a 3D printer and posted fast timelapses of the construction! Pretty soon he’ll be making 3DP robots, it will be a lot of fun to see them!”

Jaidyn Edwards of Duino-Robotics.

My name is Jaidyn Edwards (also known on the internet as “chickenparmi”). I have had an interest in machines my whole life. Being a kid growing up in a world full of technological innovation I took a notebook wherever I went and designed machines in my spare time. As my interest in electronics grew none of my toys were safe, I pulled them apart longing to know what sort of ‘magic’ was going on inside of them.

As the years passed my interest in robotics grew until one summer for Christmas I received a LEGO Mindstorms NXT kit. The NXT opened up a whole new world of creation possibilities and cemented a forever attraction to hobbyist robotics. 
In June 2012 I discovered the ‘Maker Movement’ and something called an Arduino. Interested in the applications it was being used for I purchased one and began researching ways to use it. Every creation I’ve made was recorded and uploaded to YouTube as a means for self-documentation. 

Discovering the site LetsMakeRobots opened me up to a whole community dedicated to creating robots. Determined to raise awareness for hobbyist robotics I started to create video tutorials on the Arduino and how to create robots. 
As of now I am just making the break into turning my passion into a career. I’m now working with several people in the robotics field helping with robotics kits and also working on a Video Course that will be available for sale later this year.
