I really hope that this helps people out there to get started! I would love to control some of your robots and blinky lights through Google+ Hangouts. Oh yeah, and it would be great to see them on the Robot Party!
Let me know if you have any questions along the way, and I can try and answer them! Gooooood luck!
There is a special edition Robot Party this Saturday! We will be broadcasting the Lets Make Robots v4 fundraiser celebration! Anyone who has donated can be entered to win 5 prizes from Adafruit. The drawing will be done on air, so it will be really fun!

• 5AM PDT (UTC-7) (Vancouver, San Francisco)

We’re really looking forward to getting the chance to meet robot builders who haven’t been on the Robot Party before!
To join the hangout, leave a comment saying that you will want to be in the Robot Party on my G+ page. This way I can add you to my circles, and when the hangout begins you can press the ‘Join Hangout’ button. Please bring a robot to show if you are planning to join the hangout!
You can still watch the hangout stream if you don’t want to be in the hangout! The stream will be live on the Robot Party page, where you can tune in and watch it! With Google+ Hangouts on Air, the recording is automatically saved and uploaded, so if you can’t make it, you can watch the recording!
This is similar to the previous special edition LMR fundraiser Robot Party celebration, where NilsB showed us his awesome chaos bot and picked the winners!
Last night’s Robot Party was a blast, thank you to everyone who showed off their cool projects and robots!
Hope to see everyone at this special edition Robot Party!
