This week's video on Electronics teaches you how to blink LEDs with an Arduino in the 123D Circuits virtual circuit simulator. Its super-simple because the code is already pre-written and saved into the Arduino. Opening it and making changes is a snap! And don't stop there... we're growing the list of how-to videos every week!
So far we've been keeping it simple by getting the main point across in under a few minutes, but if you watch the whole video you'll also learn some engineering science! Check out the video below.

123D Circuits is a fantastic place to go to build electronic circuits without leaving your computer. It's as simple as dragging together components and watching them come alive in your web browser. It's fast, it's free, and it's quite powerful.
You can do this yourself, just head over to 123D Circuits and sign in, then create a "New Breadboard Circuit" then follow along with the video. You never know, this could be the beginning of something big - we think so!
