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.
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.
