Building a Food Computer for University Use


Hello all,

I’ve been following the food computer for quite some time, and now as a freshman in college can finally get funded to build one. My university is interested in having a food computer for bio research, and I am currently making specific plans for building one. However, I have a few questions about the project.

I personally think that for university research, it might be good to look into make a PFC, but bigger. I’m not sure if I should do this or just look into building a food server. Can anyone think of the specific pros/ cons of building either one?

Secondly, because this will be continually used for university research, does it make sense to build something now or wait until a kit comes out?

I know there’s probably no right or wrong answers to either of these questions, but if anyone has input it would be greatly appreciated!
