This article i3 Detroit gets a shout out.
Michigan hackerspaces, places throughout the state where computer program developers and designers work together, sharing space and ideas to create new projects, also took the opportunity to showcase their projects. For example, i3Detroit of Ferndale drove its Twinkie car around the fair and shot Twinkies into the air, amusing everyone.
This article talks more about the Crafting aspect of the faire.
The event is this weekend 7/30 – 7/31 starting at 9:30a. Come out and support your local hackerspace and see the great projects from across Michigan and the Great Lakes.
It’s time for another Maker Faire which means another official Maker Faire After Party. Come join us this Saturday night (7/30) at 9p for drinks, snacks and DJs. This will give you a chance to meet the members and tour the shop. We also have a special treat – we have a sneak peak at the Electromagnate hackerspace documentary that will be showing at the event. Shoot a note to email@example.com if you have any questions.
As an added bonus – here are some pictures from our project building this weekend
Bring your Maker Faire project to work on or pitch in on some of the group projects. If you have never seen i3 Detroit, tonight is the night. It will be filled with members, tools a flying and projects a finishing.
Always concerned with the safety of the space, i3 Detroit invested in a mammoth, grain silo-esque dust collector for the space. Negotiated done to 4% of it’s full retail price (used market is awesome), we now have a 15 foot tall, 7 hp dust collector. This cyclonic beast can provide suction to all of our wood working tools, the neighbors, the neighbors neighbors and most of the rest of Ferndale.
Stop by and check it out at the Maker Faire After Party (7/30 @ 9p) or tonight at open shop (7/22 @ 7p)
Sorry for the lack of posts. i3 Detroit is on full tilt for Maker Faire next week. We have nearly 30 projects on display across the faire. We have people in tents as well as projects inside the Henry Ford, cars racing on the Power Wheels track and demos on the various stages. At night, we will have the official Maker Faire After Party (9pm at i3 Detroit) with a 15 minute sneak peak of the Hackerspace Documentary: Electromagnate. It’s going to be huge.
Come check out our projects and party next week. For your reading pleasure, here is a link to the official press release – http://www.thehenryford.org/events/makerFaire.aspx
