Got a microcontroller project that is gathering dust? Why not bring it by the electronics room at i3Detroit tonight (7pm-10pm). Bring any Arduino or microcontroller projects for a round of show and tell and some brain storming. I will be bringing my Arduino projects from the 2011 Detriot Maker Faire that I want to revise. The Microhelicopter Race Track and Audio Game Ring have been sitting idle for too long! Hope to see you there. -SWiT
Ever dream of a place where you could build and craft your heart’s desires?
A place to find other Do-It-Yourself-ers and get tips and advice?
A place where you could learn to use and have access to tools that would never fit into your garage or your budget?
That place exists, today. Welcome to i3Detroit.
Here at i3Detroit, we want to create and build, probably much like yourself. We’re not a profit-driven tool rental center, we’ve got a burning passion to create, tinker, hack and make, one that drives us to create the best possible community and space. Our members take pride in what we’ve built, and for good reason. We’ve got such a diverse range of things to create with here, and we’ve done it all as a highly-engaged volunteer community with a passion for things such as crafting, woodworking, metalworking, electronics, welding, programming, and digital fabrication!
Located near the heart of Ferndale, we’re close to many local events and an amazing community. If you’re curious about, or never heard of a Makerspace, then swing on by on a Friday evening or a Tuesday meeting night to take a tour and get to know the membership!
Excited? Gotten this far? Come see us! You’ll find this is just the place you’ve been looking for!
See you soon!
Want to join?
i3 Detroit prides itself on being an open community, but that doesn’t mean anyone can just walk in, hand over $49, and get a key. We like all of our members to come check the space out and meet a few of the members before becoming a part of the community. Our signup process requires prospective members to get familiar with a community-run organization before joining.
i3 Detroit is always actively seeking Donations and Sponsorship to help continue our growth and educational goals. If you are interested in helping our community we have many options for you to help. Since i3 Detroit is a 501c3 organization your contribution may be tax deductible.

Check out what we’ve been up to!
Tonight at 6 PM, come out for board and card games, come out for the Penguicon dinner, or both! Choose from dozens of games. One which we will playtest is my new tile game that I made on the laser cutter, in which the players build an island and plant trees on it. At the same time, there will be a Penguicon dinner, in which we discuss plans for the upcoming convention of science fiction and open source software.
i3Detroit is a volunteer community — no staff, no regular business hours! Visitors are welcome, without prior arrangements, when we gather for meetings: on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, starting around 6pm. (The meeting itself starts at 7:30.)
Aside from regular meetings, tours can be arranged, by emailing or posting to the group. We look forward to having you as part of the community!
