Building a PFC in NE London UK


#1

Hi
My name is Jackie. I live in London UK and I’m interested in building a PFC. I’m not an engineer or IT specialist, just a food enthusiast. Is there anybody out there who would join me?
Fingers crossed

Hi Jackie,

We are 3 students from Royal College of Art & Imperial College in London. We’ve built a PFC 1.1 and currently investigate the opportunities and flaws of the system.
Alex is an architect, myself (Johannes) a user experience designer and Mikhail an industrial designer.
One of goals is: making the whole system more accessible (e.g. making the construction and setup process easier).

We would love to meet you and other food enthusiasts/ hackers around London. Please let us now if you’re interested in having a Food Computer meeting.

Best
Johannes, Alex, Mik

Hi Johannes
So sorry for not replying earlier. Thank you for the message. It’s vey exciting and I would love to meet up with you and see the PCF and discuss it with you.
I’m in Switzerland until the 4 March – my mother’s been taken ill and that’s why I haven’t been in London and haven’t replied. She’s better now.

I hope you’re still interested in a Food Computer Meeting. I should be working between 11 and 4:30 most days from 6th March.
Best regards
Jackie

Hey Ann,

Nice to meet another London based P.F.C. enthusiast. We had a meeting today at the Royal College of Art. But would love to organise a second one soon. Let us know when you’re available.

Best,

Hi, @johannes @jackiego @Ann , it is so good to find some people in the UK to build a PFC. I am currently in China, having the opportunity to purchase some components. I might come back to London at May, it will be good to see your guys in London. Let me know there is a recent meeting on this.

Hi Guys, I’m curious if there is an operational food computer around in London?

I actually watched this TED talk yesterday: https://www.ted.com/talks/anab_jain_why_we_need_to_imagine_different_futures#t-505242

I haven’t been able to find any more information about the work her lab is doing, it all seems to be very fresh!

Here are some other #nerdfarmers I know of working in London (not sure if any have a finished PFC):
