My name is Joey Hudy, I'm 15 years old. I love to build, solder, weld anything that involves electronics or engineering. I invented the Extreme Marshmallow Cannon and the 3x3x3 LED Cube Arduino Shield. I'm working on my next shield.
Recent Skill Badges earned by Joey Hudy
Oscilloscopes allow you to see what's going on in a circuit by visualizing changing signals over time. This piece of test equipment can come in handy for more advanced projects or for learning about differently shaped waves (sine, square, saw-tooth, etc.). You deserve this badge if youl learned to use your oscilloscope really well and share that knowledge with others, or you did something amazing like hacked your o-scope to be a clock (and shared it online).
A Special Note from Ladyada & the Adafruit Team
We've been a big fan of Joey as he's become one of the most prolific younger makers in recent months. From running his own kit company to appearing on our weekly SHOW-AND-TELL, Joey not only makes things - he shares. Recently Joey learned how to use an oscilloscope and in typical maker fashion made a video and shared it. We're awarding Joey the oscilloscope badges and expect to see him quickly earn many many more!

Joey recently met the President of the United States and was later specifically mentioned in a speech.
There was a kid — the kid who actually got the most attention was a young man named Joey Hudy of Arizona. That’s because Joey let me fire off a extreme marshmallow canon. (Laughter.) We did it right here in this room. We shot it from here. We pumped it up — it almost hit that light. (Laughter.) I thought it was a lot of fun. (Laughter.) And while the canon was impressive, Joey left a bigger impression because he had already printed out his own business cards — he was 14-years-old. And he was handing them out to everybody, including me. (Laughter.) He’s on our short list for a Cabinet post. (Laughter.)
