After a busy few days we are all ready and packed for the NEXT exhibition this week[end]. Sid is heading off tomorrow to Aarhus, and Adam and myself will join him on friday after our service design presentations.I will try and keep updated with what is happening at the conference when i am there!
When the sun was coming up at 5.30 this morning so were the ‘meet the food you eat’ team! After 2 hours sleep we embarked on an adventure to central station, to the TV2 studio. After being greeted by the lovely team, we were introduced to Preben Mejer, founder of the Innovation Lab. After an initial chat it was soon time to unpack the scale, to see if it had survived the journey! After overcoming the first problem of the essential power cable being left behind in the middle of the night, it was time to set up in true TV style…..during the 5 minute commercial break. Adam and myself then had to sit back and wait with our fingers crossed! Luckily everything went perfectly,and the scale performed well! Here are some photos and a video of us watching the scale on TV. Once i get a copy of the live version, i will re post it! I am still on such a high 🙂
Tomorrow morning Sid, Adam myself will be embarking on an adventure to the TV2 studio in Copenhagen. Innovation Lab’s Founder, Preben Mejer, will be on “Go’ Morgen Danmark” discussing the NEXT conference and exhibition where four of the Pilot Year projects will be shown. Meet the Food you Eat will be featured on the show which will air between 6.30-9.00 on TV2. So right now we are finishing last minute calibration and wiring changes….it could be a long night. Wish us luck! 🙂
We got some Super exciting news today that Adam, Sid and I are getting to exhibit meet the food you eat at the NEXT exhibition in April organised by the innovation lab. Now we just need to get our prototype stable enough to last 5 days 🙂
Today Adam, Sid and i were super excited to see that our Project had been featured on Treehugger, this was really great for us, as throughout the project we had used this website as one of our keys sources of information, data and inspiration. Since the end of our TUI project we have been overwhelmed by the support and feedback we have been given with regards to our idea. It’s really great to see people getting excited about sustainability, and really caring about how their actions are having an affect on society. I am also very excited to say that i think we will be exhibiting our project at the NEXT conference in april, run by the Innovation lab…i will keep you updated with that though!
