Meet the Maker: Incite Focus

By Kristen Lomasney

If Detroit's Incite Focus sounds familiar, it's because it was a stop on Adam Savage's Maker Tour.

Wait, does Incite Focus sound familiar to you? If it does, it might be because Adam Savage stopped there in 2017 during his Maker Tour, and we walked away with TWO videos: one about the open-source, net-zero-energy micro cabin they were working on, and one about their open-source adjustable table. We were SO impressed with their work.

Read on for more about Incite Focus and to see the part they contributed to Project Egress.

About: Incite Focus is a world-recognized, cutting-edge production and training lab focused on the relationships between Digital Fabrication, Permaculture, Experiential Learning, and Appropriate Technology.

Our Fab Lab is a platform for learning and innovation: a place to play, learn, create, mentor, and invent.

We maintain a collaborative learning space where concepts and ideas are realized through technologies that give its users the capacity to produce items effective for personal, household, community, commercial, and industrial use.

Our small-scale production space for digital fabrication serves as a stimulus for local entrepreneurship, allowing Makers to make almost anything using an array of digital technology.

As a Fab Lab we are an educational outreach component of MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA) and a part of a global network that spans over 30 countries and 24 time zones. The Fab Lab is a global community connecting learners of all ages, educators, technologists, researchers, makers, and innovators.
