    Had a great time again, The presentation on making wooden sunglasses so that the product would float in water is a great idea, why did it take 100 years for someone to come up with a common sense idea like that? Ben Franklin would be proud. The short presentation by Fred Cruz on the formation of an Electronic user group within the Tech Shop was great and a few members have shown interest in making it happen. The last presentation on the quad-copter was outstanding, this was really something to be seen, along with the video's shown on how one was used in a Detroit fire, if only the Detroit Fire Service had this full time it could of save at least two members from being hurt and in the future who knows. If you missed this Concepts and Coffee at the TechShop you're missing a lot of great information. Hope to see you at the next one. Tim King, member
