<div dir="ltr">I just got this email about an upcoming event called "The Deconstruction".  It's some kind of competition where you register your team and then spend 48 hours making something awesome.  It seems like there aren't many rules and it can be something physical, it can be an app, music, whatever.  You just have to make something.  It looks like they currently have a prize available that is a 40W laser cutter.<div>
<br></div><div>The dates of the event are Feb 22 - 24, which is exactly when our Make-o-rama is.  Although, if we had a team working furiously on a project during the event, that might be kind of cool.  I was thinking about signing up because that Red Bull group project last summer was one of the most fun projects I've worked on.  Is anyone else interested in this?</div>
<div><br></div><div style>We'd have to document everything and/or live stream it.  We'd also have to work around our make-o-rama event somehow but I bet we could make it work.</div><div><br></div><div>Rick<br><br>
