Royal Oak Spooktacular!

Sunday was Pumpkin Carving and Halloween Costume Build Day at i3 Detroit. It also happened to be Spooktacular in Royal Oak where all the families can go trick or treating at the businesses in downtown Royal Oak. We thought it would be fun to take the Cup Cake car for a drive downtown to hand out candy. The response to the Cup Cake car was great as usual and a lot of fun handing out candies and photos with the kids.

Amazing Weekend

This weekend was an awesome time spent with all the members for our first weekend of buildout at the new i3 Detroit Space. We are making good progress and are very excited to have our Grand Opening Party in a few weeks and wanted to share some photos of the space and happenings over the weekend. Come by and Check us out we will be having our weekly meeting tomorrow evening at the new space @ 7:00 P.M. 322 East 4th Street Royal Oak Mi.

It’s Official!

Five months ago i3 Detroit was started based on a vision that was inspired by the many other hackerspaces building and growing throughout the world. This inspiration found itself only with a website and a call out to all Detroit area makers, crafters, coders, artists and thinkers to come together to build a new community space and environment. Five months and a dozen dedicated members later we have finally been able to secure a home for this new community called i3 Detroit.

As of today i3 Detroit has secured a space at 322 E. 4th St. in Royal Oak Mi. We will be working hard over the next couple of weeks to build out our new creative environment. Once we have finalized the space we will be hosting a Grand Opening Event please stay tuned for more details.

Here are some photos of the new space and we will continue to post new photos as we make the space our own.

Congratulations Team for making this happen!
