This project is still in alpha phase, meaning that the prototype is not functional at all.
The first release contains the source files of the designs and materials used during the #FOOD2030EU event in Brussels on Oct 12, 2016. The goal of that workshop was to prototype a device and have a discussion on bottom-up citizens led protein production. We built our own alpha version of the photobioreactor with the aim to grow Spirulina.
The goal of the Photobioreactor is to control or monitor the following parameters:
- Amount of light based on a day / night cycle
- Measure the amount of light
- Measure the pH
- Measure the temperature
- Display these values on an LCD screen
Here is a video of a fully completed device.
