Maker Faire 2013 and the Official After Party

Maker Faire Detroit – July 27-28 9:30am – 6:00pm

With over a dozen projects from the members of i3 Detroit spread across the faire, make sure you don’t miss anything, check out inside the museum along with the i3 tent. Don’t miss the laminar flow fountain our president Matt Oehrlein has put together with the help of his fellow members. http://laminarfountain.blogspot.com/
If you have not had a chance to stop by the space, come to maker faire and see what our members have created.
Afterwards come over to i3 (Saturday 27, 7pm) and enjoy the company of other makers from local and afar.

 

2013 MAKER FAIRE OFFICIAL AFTER PARTY

Make hard, play hard. That’s what we say over at i3 Detroit – Metro Detroit’s D.I.Y. Workspace. Okay, we don’t actually say that, but maybe we should start.
On Saturday, July 27th, i3 Detroit will open its doors to Maker Faire’s finest, and those curious about the creative and inspiring environment we have cultivated at our location. Come on over, take a tour, talk shop, and meet some of the creative geniuses behind your favorite projects you saw at Maker Faire.

We’ll have food and snacks, some “adult beverages” (heh heh), and music to keep you entertained well into the night.

We’re getting some parking details worked out right now at a vacant lot right next to us. We’ll have a parking attendant monitor it, so all your goodies will be nice and safe.

Maker Faire 2013 after party flier

Red Bull Creation 2013 – Liveblog!!

RBC 2013 has gotten off to a roaring start! Our i3 Build team have taken planes, trains, and automobiles to converge on one of the most exciting moments together this summer! Matt, Sean, Rocco, Eric and Marie are on site and hacking away! Mission Control has dozens of people in a flurry to find our guys(and girl) directions to the hardware store, prices, part numbers or even the closest hair salon for gel/cream/fiber/magic to keep Matt’s hair in tip top shape during the craziness!

### Updates ###
[6/13 3:00PM] —   The team has dismantled and hacked the floor fans provided by RBC this year. Truly a sacrifice during the blistering Brooklyn heat.    

[6/13 3:25PM] —  Matt is dangerously low on hair product!

[6/13 3:37PM] — Matt: “We are at Home Depot, Message for supplies we are grabbing corded drills”
