You might have noticed the first part of this week I was in Detroit for the North American International Auto Show (#FordNAIAS and #FordTX online). The Ford Motor Company was nice enough to invite me for the second year in a row. Last year, my first time in Detroit and the auto show, was really quite the experience so of course I was thrilled to go back and check out all of the latest models from vehicle makers the world over, especially from Ford.
Besides what better way to kick off a New Year than with a trip!?
As expected, the trip itself was a lot of fun. We got to visit Ford’s world headquarters; drive a handful of their new cars and trucks; stop by the Henry Ford Museum; and my personal favorite, talk one on one with the very creative and quirky TechShop team. That night was especially hands on as we got to sandblast our own beer mugs, silkscreen our own tote bags, and play with a whole bunch of other cool tools that I probably wouldn’t have otherwise ever gotten to touch. They even had a 3D printer. That was pretty awesome!
Here’s a quick recap of what we got to experience:
Bueno, there was so much more we got to experience, but this kind of gives you an idea of what I got to see, hear and touch in Detroit. I hope you like the pictures!
