Residents

Residents forced from their homes by high rent refuse to leave their hometown. They believe living out of their vehicles is a stand against big tech companies.

Tech Workers

Migrant tech workers aren't interested in making $90k (average) only to "throw away" half on rent.

Day Laborers

Day laborers migrate here for steady jobs but often underestimate the cost of living and compensate by living out of vehicles

Project: Incogneato [in-kog-NEAT-oh!]

DISCRETE replacement sedan interior system designed to support those living out of vehicles. This system transforms the traditional sedan into a modern day nomad's motorhome.

What it does:

Sleeping

A peaceful night's sleep without harassment is difficult in an SUV or motor-home. A sedan is a much more discrete option.

Working

Silicon Valley's 'Code Rush' attracts entrepreneurs who are always on the go and need an office they can bring with them.

Hanging Out

To go fast, go alone. To go far, go together. Incogneato creates an inviting space encouraging collaboration, creativity and relaxation.

How it does it:
