Join us for a lazy Sunday afternoon of vinyl melting. The idea is simple: Take an old record album, add heat, and reshape the now goey black disk into something awesome!
Make cool wall art, a dish for chex mix, or a decoration for your art car. Whatever you want! We don’t care as long as you take home something you proudly forged in the fires of your own creativity! Bring some random metal stuff you might want to form your records around, otherwise we will have various objects to seve this purpose on hand!
We will also have some Popsicles served up to keep cool in the summer heat! ¡Qué refrescante! (how refreshing!)
Admission includes two vinyl records for melting. Feel free to bring some from home, or buy more from us for $1/record if we have extras!
This event goes for 3 hours, but feel free to come and go anytime within that 3 hours. The actual act of melting should only take around 5-15 minutes per record.

This Wednesday and Thursday 7pm – 10pm we will have the 2 test arenas, and 4 test robots bouncing around at i3Detroit. If you want to play with some arduino or python code or just want to checkout the balloon based carnage stop by either evening.
Also, a big thank you to the folks at the Detroit Night Market and all who helped decorate the RKF truck. Especially Kristine for her photos and machine inspired decorations.
The next event Robot Knife Fight will be sparring at is the annual Detroitnet pink slip party June 21st at Woody’s in Royal Oak. It is a networking event for IT professionals and recruiters. See you there.
TechShop Detroit held their Grand Opening Celebration this weekend on May 5–6, 2012.
For their People Mover Design Challenge, they generously offered use of their makerspace, classes, and the help of their very knowledgeable staff to a joint i3 Detroit / District VII team composed of Kristine Diven, Micho Detronik, and Hans Chen.
President Matt Oehrlein was also invited to speak at the panel “Putting the D in DIY”.
A big thank you to TechShop and all its Detroit and out-of-state staff for their amazing hospitality, generosity, and making us such an important part of their opening!
Tomorrow (Sunday 4/22/2012) from 10am until 5pm I will be at i3Detroit with my Robot Fight Club cohorts making the arena python code better. If you like Python, OpenCV, Microcontrollers, or Fighting Robots bring your laptop and lend a hand! We can use all the help we can get.
