‘Secret Topic’ Revealed Today at Red Bull Creation

by

DETROIT (Z965 ALT RADIO) -- Inventors, makers and hackers will descend on Lincoln Street Art Park in downtown Detroit this evening to kick-off 2014’s Red Bull Creation competition. 7 teams were selected as finalists to compete in the 72-hour competition wrapping up on Saturday July 12th.

The public is encouraged to marvel at the competitors work as they grind, weld and craft their way through this year’s ‘secret topic’.   

The root of the Creation competition revolves around the unveiling of the ‘secret topic’ as finalists compete to win the competition based on their concepts. This year’s secret topic is rumored to have a “community progress” theme. The word from local speculation has it that Detroit was picked by Red Bull as the host of this year’s event by no accident. Detroit has a lively underground art scene that continues to cultivate regardless of the city’s descent into decay.

Follow the Red Bull Creation LIVE twitter feed to get this year’s secret topic reveal first happening this evening between 6-9pm EST.

What is Red Bull Creation? Starting in 2011, the popular energy drink brand took on inventor-junkies by hosting a competition that fueled the passionate field of design and construction. Teams submitted their creations online and then were chosen as finalists to take part in the Creation competition held in different cities around the country each year. This year’s qualifying theme asked participants to submit a creation that could improve a specific need in the community. For more on details about Red Bull Creation click here.
