News From Inside the Tie Lab

Maker Faire Detroit, 2015 - Come See Cyberoptix! July 22, 2015 13:08

In honor of Maker Faire coming up, it is Geek Week here at Cyberoptix, and we mean that only in the most loving of ways. We punctuate "geek" with -chic, it is never a pejorative! We've got 5 new designs launching, just this week!

Just like last year we'll be setting up inside the Henry Ford Museum (in years prior, we've set up camp outside, but it is too risky to have lightweight ties potentially blowing away in the wind). Be sure to take a break from the hot sun and see all the cool things happening inside the museum. We'll have a whole host of new nerdy, science, math, space and maker themed ties and scarves just for you, in addition to our legendary discount bin that only comes out once in a blue moon. 

Make has toured our Tie Lab studio before - see the great job they did on the video!

"Bethany Shorb of Cyberoptix TieLab recently acquired a stash of old used silkscreens to be reclaimed and reused to print her tie designs. But a closer inspection revealed something too interesting to wash out, and these industrial cast-offs generate some truly unique ties."

Maker Faire Detroit
July 25-26, 2015 (9:30am - 6pm)

Tinker, hack and mingle with hundreds of makers during the ultimate festival of invention and creativity at the world’s original Maker mecca — Detroit. Maker Faire is like a three-ring circus of innovation. Robotics, electronics, rockets, food, music, fashion, science — if somebody makes it, we’ll find a place for it at Maker Faire Detroit. This is, without doubt, one of the most unusual and mind-boggling events to ever find a home in Detroit.

Maker Faire is a place where the DIY mindset can run wild. Inspiring and ingenious, with more than a little humor mixed in, this eye-popping gathering is one of the country’s smartest and most extraordinary family-friendly events. Hundreds of exhibiting makers are expected to participate, offering dozens of demonstrations and hands-on workshops for anyone — child or adult — who still has a sense of adventure.
