On Saturday, June 26th, from 11AM – 4PM, we are at Bed-a-Palooza in Troy at Trainers Academy with Retro Doggy Rescue. The goal of the event is to build 100 dog beds for Michigan shelters, where shelter dogs currently sleep on the floor. This week has been a flurry of PVC and we have cut and assembled the 100 bed frames. The day of the event, we will oversee the attaching of fabric to build each bed into a sturdy hammock. We are also hosting a BBQ at the event that will start at Noon.
Meet Nemo. Matt will be bringing the Skee Ball machine to help raise money for this little cutie who has a stage 3 heart murmur and has to go see a cardiologist.
Come one, come all! The public is welcome to stop by and join the fun! Trainers Academy is located at 1016 Troy Court, Troy, 48083. More information can be found at their website: www.woofology.com.
All proceeds will go to Retro Doggy Rescue, a local no-kill rescue. They will also be accepting physical donations such dog food, treats, toys (new or used), bowls, collars, leashes, crates, blankets, sheets, towels, throw rugs, cat food, cat litter, cat toys/supplies, or anything else pet related.
If you want to donate to the cause and can’t join us Saturday:

Lisa Smith and Caroline Linder‘s “Pipette Lamps”, pictured here, got blisteringly hot when equipped with halogen bulbs. Before showing the lamps at Cite, they wanted to switch light sources. But multiwatt illumination-class LEDs are a bit tricky to drive, and that expertise proved elusive. After pursuing dead-ends with overworked grad students, local electricians, and other leads, the designers asked a geeky friend, who happened to be an i3Detroit member. The connection was instant and, in retrospect, obvious.
Smith and Linder’s request was modest — design hints, electronics help, links to parts suppliers — but shipping takes time, and the looming deadline made it clear that the arm’s-length approach wouldn’t succeed. Continue reading »
