Jeri getting her own show?

[Jeri Ellsworth] has been very excited about this new opportunity. She sent us a “pilot video“, so we’re assuming that there will be more to come.  In the pilot, she explains how to build a musical art installation that will play music when a viewer is in position. She covers several different ways to detect the presence of the person, ultimately landing on using a PIR sensor for detection. We can’t wait to see where this show goes, but we hope she continues to do her own hacking videos as well.

    An electronics vlog, with a girl, and actual interesting content… wow! Nice idea Jeri, please let us know if you’re going to do more videos! :D

  2. Jeri is awesome… I liked her videos on how to build a safety cage in a race car, though I wish she’d finish the series.

    I can’t blame her though… I think we all suffer from project ADD to some extent.

  3. Chris Muncy says:

    I hope she never stops.

    Congrats Jeri!

  4. Daniel Reetz says:

    Congrats! That’s great news.

  5. moorebrb says:

    Move over BenHeck! Here comes Jeri!

  6. Reaper says:

    This can only end well.

  7. Element14 and I spent months debating how to pull this off. I liked their parts store, but I wasn’t pleased with the chunkiness of their community/forums. We came to an agreement that I didn’t have to claim it was the best forum on the web and they’d take feedback and try to fix it.

    I’m OK with that. (call me a sell out)

    @Twistedsymphony The roll cage project has to wait until the weather gets better her in Oregon.

    @hack-a-day This project means even more hacks!

    gotta love that girl.. xD

  9. bob says:

    wow, this is geek heaven,
    the geek babe of the milenium making hot videos,
    oh wow, i’m in geek heaven.
    shame she is married though

  10. M4CGYV3R says:

    I will totally watch this show.

    Whether or not I will be wearing pants while doing so remains to be determined.

  11. supershwa says:

    Way to go, Jeri! I’ll be watching! Good luck (I doubt you’ll need it.)

  12. Jac Goudsmit says:

    I know I’m a few years older than Jeri and I’m a guy, but when I grow up I wanna be just like her!

  13. third says:

    I’d say, the more Jeri the better!
    When she said in the video “All the music you’ve heard in this video was generated in real time from me dancing around in front of the PIR sensor.” my first thought was: I’d wanna see a video of that! Guess what the end of the video was.
    Oh you silly girl, Jeri! Keep it up!

  14. George Johnson says:

    Good news! I think girls make science extra sexy. I mean it’s already sexy by itself. But add a really smart girl in there! Zowie!!

    And she seems more that capable to do this. She looks like (seems like) a very smart girl/woman. So I think she could do a great job at it.

    And it looks like she has tons of support. So I’m all for it, great move on her part. I just hope she gets plenty of input from other places to keep making those interesting videos. I mean I hope she doesn’t run out of material.

  15. Frogz says:

    move over kari byron and grant imahara, jeri is replacing BOTH of them

  16. Ugly American says:

    The music reminds me of early Dr. Who and other classic sci-fi shows.

    It’s always cool to see people making a living doing what they love.

  17. Kris Lee says:

    Honestly it was a bit fast for me to follow. A bit slower explaining and pauses so I can stop and inspect the schematics a bit would really improve the experience for me.

  18. Matt says:

    She reminds me of Erin from The Office. Except smart.

  19. not the same Matt says:

    I really liked the video and I hope it takes off.

    Feedback for Jeri: I don’t have an electronics background and I found the screen capture schematics confusing when the video was zoomed out.

    In the future, would it be possible to have a pointer highlighting the components of interest or something similar to what you did with the marker and paper?

  20. M4CGYV3R says:

    @Kris Lee: You know there is a pause button, right?

  21. nah! says:

    you guys all have a crush on jeri

  22. Kris Lee says:

    @M4CGYV3R

    I happen to know that but there is no “Slow down” button. Jeris other videos about her own stuff are someway much much better. I just guessed that this is because of the speed.

  23. Jakob says:

    Jeri, you did the C64, can’t you help out at Natami? We are doing an Amiga clone, only much faster and with a custom CPU. :-)

  24. smoker_dave says:

    M4CGYV3R’s pause button is broke ;)

  25. Teflon prosk says:

    Yeah 4 Jeri,

    Hope the pir doesn’t drive her crazy.
    I found them not so good in a gallery
    Environment. Microwave sensors are more
    Reliable. Good one at Ramsey.

  26. walt says:

    @bob “shame she is married though”
    yeah, cause anyone here really had a shot. lol! why did you even go there?

  27. CameronSS says:

    @nah!: Are you saying there’s someone who doesn’t?

  28. Frogz says:

    speaking of people besides jeri we dont care about, whatever happened to fatman?

  29. bob says:

    walt,
    yeah lol, but we can all dream though!
    wow what a dream girl!
    and yes, any one who has half a brain can not but notice what a babealicious babe jeri is,
    sorry for this next statement, but beutifull ( to the googilionth power times infinity )ladys/young women that are tech savy, are few, and are needed more and more, and are every bit as good/better than their male counterparts, pound for pound.
    jeri makes a cool role model for any girlies looking to the tech industries as a carrear,
    go jeri, go jeri, go jeri

  30. nah! says:

    lol @nerdpornworship

  31. Neckbeard says:

    Does anyone remember when hacking had nothing to do with art at all?

  32. Fallen says:

    Wow, you guys need to stop drooling for a sec and read what you’re posting. This is a hacking blog, appreciate Jeri for he hacking potential, not her looks. It’s sad when every other comment has absolutely nothing to do with this post. :(

    Anyways this is great news for the hacking community.

  33. nah! says:

    thats the problem when attractive women try to teach you something, even after the best lesson one heared the only thing one thinks about is boobs.
    and thats why women are not very common in hacking communities

  34. Fallen says:

    Nah!,

    I think they might be less common because society tells them that it isn’t an acceptable hobby/career/etc. In my EE courses there’s probably less than 1 female per 15-20 males. :(

    Maybe Jeri’s show can change that. :)
