I'm pleased to welcome the Center for Design Innovation to the list of generous sponsors for Maker Faire:NC 2011. CDI is a multi-campus research center of the University of North Carolina system whose mission is "to create an environment in which diverse constituents generate, develop and translate creative thinking to foster the growth of education, research and commercial enterprises."
To fulfill this mission CDI is constructing a facility on four acres in downtown Winston-Salem's Piedmont Triad Research Park. The interim facility, however, is pretty fantastic already and includes awesome technology such as Z-Corp and Dimension 3D printers, and a complete HD production and editing facility. The list of technology is remarkable.
Thanks for supporting Maker Faire:NC!
