The changing face of electronic videos 2016

Notice something? There are a lot more electronics videos and not only are they becoming very popular, they’re not what or who was previously celebrated as being an engineer, making and sharing and that’s fantastic. We’re often asked what we’re watching, here are 2 rising stars that we’re having a lot of fun watching lately when we’re not making videos.



Micah Elizabeth Scott @scanlime – Art engineer, compulsive toolmaker, technical chaos demon. Currently making http://wiggleport.org. Video above “Coastermelt” – The first in a series about reverse engineering optical drives for fun and maybe laser graffiti.



Simone Giertz Professional – robot builder. House boat living. Arduinos, programming, duct taping. Latest Youtube video: www.youtube.com/c/simonegiertz. Video above is using a UFactory robot arm.

What’s interesting about Simone’s videos is that they’re part physical comedy (think Chaplin’s modern times) and part awareness of platforms like Arduino. They’re also catching the attention of YouTube and media outlets like CNN. We fully expect a brand partnership, show-offer and more any moment if it hasn’t already happened.


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.
