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.

With its pitch-black dinner events, The Austin Blind Cafe provides a work opportunity and platform to express experiences for Austinites who are blind; it also provides an opportunity for guests to experience an evening without sight. St. Martin's Lutheran Church will throw open its doors for the event, held August 18–20, leading participants into its facility under complete darkness. After presenting a family style, three-course meal, the blind wait staff will engage in a question-and-answer session about blindness, discussing spatial awareness and sensory deprivation. A dark-chocolate dessert will conclude the evening, followed by a live performance of original music from Rosh & One Eye Glass Broken, which weaves viola, cello, guitar, and voice into an enchanting aural experience.
