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.
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.



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

Friday Robot Fight Night (Beta)

Robot Knife Fight is ready for some player testers.  Ted and I will be at the  shop this Friday (2013-06-28) starting at 8pm to help people get up to speed in how to compete and run a game.  Bring your laptop with the Arduino IDE already installed.  If you want to help improve the arena’s python code, clone the git repo. If scheduling permits we will be doing this every Friday until Detroit Maker Faire 2013.

RBCreation; SUCCESS!!!!

After a long weekend full of emotion and sweat, i3Detroit was awarded the Team’s Choice award!!!
