i3 Detroit’s team is halfway through the Great Global Hackerspace Challenge. We’ve been tasked with creating a device that uses a microcontroller and portable power source to help education. We’ve brainstormed and idea and now we’re hard at work to make it a reality.
i3 Detroit is joining the MILLION CRANE PROJECT to collect one million paper cranes by May 11, two months after Japan’s devastating earthquake. Completed cranes will then be used by a team of artists, including Makoto Fujimura, to create a piece of memorial art. See http://www.millioncraneproject.org/ for more info.
Come fold with us!
WHEN: Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 13 at 6:30-8:30pm
WHO: Everybody! We will teach you to fold if you don’t know how. It’s
- old magazines and scrap paper to use as eco-friendly origami paper
- cash for dinner (there will likely be a take-out sushi run)
See you there!
Ferndale, MI – i3 Detroit, Metro Detroit’s premiere community hackerspace, will be recognizing its one year anniversary at its Ferndale location with a public celebration and ceremony today, April 9th, 2011 at 6 pm.
The 8,000 square-foot workshop has provided an ideal location for hosting classes and events for the community. Events held in the last year include introductions to welding, metal-casting, air brush, soldering, painting and even how to make home-brew soda.
The new location has also allowed its members to work on larger-scale projects using more advanced equipment. The space now boasts a growing wood and machine shop, a fabrication lab with access to laser and vinyl cutters, a chemistry lab, a bicycle repair area, an electronics room and a craft room, as well as other areas that encourage collaboration and creativity.
The event is open to the public with tool and project demonstrations.
Ferndale, MI 48220

A bunch of i3ers are meeting at the space on Thursday, April 7th to pile into cars and head to Ann Arbor. That’s right – we’re going to flash-mob* our friends at All Hands Active! If you want to check out our awesome space-neighborinos, join us! We will depart at 6:00 PM sharp from i3 and will return at varying stages of “late.” It all depends on when you driver has to get up on Friday.
If you want to coordinate a ride, bring it up on our member list. You can also talk to Karen the Event Master at email@example.com.
