QGITS was thrilled to meet up and have a chat with Jeremy Blum while attending the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV. Jeremy spent most of his time during CES catching up on the latest industry trends; he particularly enjoyed the 3D printing Tech Zone, given his background building and designing 3D printers at Cornell and MakerBot. Jeremy alternated between full time and consulting positions at MakerBot Industries from 2011 to 2013, while finishing his undergraduate and Masters degrees at Cornell University. While at Makerbot he was responsible for designing an all-new electronics platform for the 3rd generation MakerBot (the original replicator), which was announced and launched at CES 2012. Jeremy has been into science and engineering most of his life and is a very strong believer and promoter of the “learn by doing” motto.

He recently wrote a book titled “Exploring Arduino,” which teaches readers about the Arduino electronics prototyping platform. He hopes the book will enable him to reach a large audience of people – both kids and adults. He is an Entrepreneur/Maker, produces a popular Arduino Tutorial video series, has built a ton of open source projects, and is presently working as a hardware engineer on the GLASS team at Google [x]. On December 16th, he announced that he would be donating 100% of his royalties from sales of his book to support STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) education with the support of Google matching his donations.

Check out this video with Jeremy Blum as he talks about CES, SUNN, Arduino, and more.
