Replicated Food and Configurable Analog

Adventures for a New Day

Fish Fry: the Final Frontier. In this episode, we journey to a world where our analog is programmable (ok, configurable) and our food is replicated (complete with a full serving of your nutritional needs). First, we delve into the bits, bobs, and ADCs of Maxim’s new PIXI configurable analog with Martin Mason. Martin and I discuss the details of this new configurable analog, and why the PIXI is better (and more flexible) than a big ol’ pile of discreet components. Also this week, we check out Nestlé’s new “Iron Man” program that aims to reshape our kitchens and resupply the world’s nutritional needs. (Spoiler Alert: A true Star Trek food replicator may be closer to reality than we know.)

We’re giving away five PIXI kits (courtesy of Maxim Integrated Products) but you’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out how to enter to win!

I worked at HP in Ft. Collins, Colorado back in the 1970s. It was a heady experience. We were designing and building early, pre-PC desktop computers and we owned the market back then. The division I worked for eventually migrated to 32-bit workstations, chased from the deskto...
