Adding to all of the Detroit tech scene’s recent hype, this week the city hosted Techweek, a conference and expo meant to celebrate technology and innovation.
Today we popped over to Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions and Techweek events, to check out the scene. In case you didn’t get to attend, we wanted to share some of the highlights:
1. Meeting Vgo, a robot brought by Verizon to cruise around and network, conference badge and all.
2. Listening to the team at Silversmith explain how this automated fire hydrant, called Chaps, is saving water and improving cities.
3. Cheering on our Detroit tech colleagues on a panel called “Detroit Start-up City.”
5. Taking pictures until our phones ran out of memory, because we were so inspired by it all.
In the Conference Program, “Team Techweek” wrote: “Truly, we are inspired by the incredible response from Detroit in making Techweek 2015 even more ground-breaking and far-reaching than last year.”
Truly, we at LevelEleven are inspired by the innovation that we got to witness today. We can’t wait for Techweek Detroit 2016.
