3 Wide Racing Entertainment brings miniaturized race-day rowdiness to parties and events, sending radio-controlled stock cars zooming around a portable 9'x18' racetrack, complete with drivers' stations and a professionally dressed pit crew. During each two-hour sprint, four hot rods at a time vie for blacktop supremacy on the XP18 racetrack, which boasts a digital lap counter, computerized in-race announcing, and a cybernetic agent to manage the racers' sponsorship opportunities. Races are standardized at about 2–3 minutes per go-around, leaving plenty of time for rematches. Whether wannabe drivers are children, adults, or two children in a trench coat and false mustache, easy-to-operate controls put revelers of all ages in the driver’s seat.

Visitors to Austin Free-Net’s computer labs can bolster typing skills, build a resume to submit to potential employers, and embark on the online-job-application process. However, in order to maintain the health of the labs’ systems, its computers run a program that wipes hard drives after each client completes a session, preventing them from saving their work. Austin Free-Net would like to equip those who complete a computer course—such as basic skills or Word basics—with a 1-gigabyte flash drive. The drive contains enough storage space for users to save numerous documents and its portability will allow users to carry their information anywhere they go.
