@drewthomas89 has built one that we are getting the software loaded to now (There are some pics on the MVP - Product Design thread). I know @nav has the software running, and @webbhm will be starting his build next week.
I hope to get two more people building them here locally as well, we will definitely be making some improvements. I hope to stick with our timeline and have a beta release ready by next week with a more thorough BOM and a simpler hardware/software setup.
I may not have the aeroponics system done in time for it to be a part of the initial release. Which is OK though because I plan for that system to be usable in either the PFC V2 or the MVP.
@melanieshimano I would love to somehow incorporate curriculum into the MVP project. I feel like right now documentation for the PFC is great for building it, but when it comes time to operating the machine there is almost no information. Having a guide that has students grow say buttercrunch lettuce and then at 3 days it explains germination, at 5 days you talk about seedlings and lifecycles, etc. I know you’ve done similar work developing curriculum for your PFC’s and would love to try and “open source” that to get it available to more teachers so they see the value clearer.
Here’s a pic of the enclosure:
