University of Montana opens Innovation Factory – Open to the Public – Come Join the Fun

UM Innovation Factory

The space’s furnishings include sewing machines, power tools, 3D printers, a laser cutter and, in one corner, a “liquid galaxy display” with wraparound screens for displaying terrain and animations.

The Factory’s directors, faculty members Elizabeth Dove and Brad Allen, envision an equally eclectic set of products taking shape here — everything from an “esports” arena for serious video gamers to an interactive tree model for the new Missoula Public Library. The Innovation Factory, abbreviated as IF, is set to open Friday with 30 days of public events.
