The third installment of SXSW Interactive’s Create event will be coming to the City Terrace at the Long Center Friday, Mar. 7-Sunday, Mar. 9 from 11 am to 6 pm. This cool event is FREE and open to the public. That’s right, no badge required!

It’s an event where folks get to witness some amazing, creative advances and innovations in technology that brings all that futuristic stuff (that is totally not in the future anymore) to Austin for our entertainment. Cool innovations from drones and smart phones, to crafty inventions and tech start-ups will be on deck.

Attendees will get a peek at innovations like the Flexbot, a customizable, smartphone-controlled, open source nanocopter. You’ll get some inspiration from the people at MAKE, an organization devoted entirely to DIY technology projects. You’ll see what the deal is with 3D printers, LEDs, laser engravers and more. See the full list of exhibitors and participants here.

Enjoy the badge free fun at SXSW Interactive this weekend!
