The Next Level of Food Computing

The OSU Energy Systems Engineers are hard at making growing chamber modifications to our food computer. What started as a conversation with the team about maximizing the growing space inside has now become a reality. This is the first iteration of 2-level design, and we are looking forward to continuing to conduct our energy analyses.

I am constantly amazed with the amount of talent, energy, and creativity that has gone into our controlled-environment growing experiments. We began with an open-source project, via the OpenAg Initiative, and we are continuing to explore the potential that we bring to alternative means of food production here in Bend, Oregon.
