The Internet of Things
X
Gastronomy

Digitality and gastronomy rarely meet to be constructive toward each other. Information around tasting are usually a top-down function ie. chefs decide. 31T makes food fascinating, makes tasting evident, and makes bottom-up information available. By the crowd experimenting, sharing and prompting other guests to replicate new found combinations. The bottom up approach advances culinary experimentation otherwise deviced only by the great chefs.

31T is where an archive of culinary artifacts will be created, digitalized, and exhibited, serving both specialists and general public. We believe in the potency of growing this inspiring set of data and make it available for all.

PAULO
BARCELOS
technologist

Paulo believes that knowledge is useless if not shared. Across all the different projects, he uses technology as a way of expression, and creates tools and environments that help people reclaim their curiosity and creative drive. He researches ways to make humans relate to machines in a more pleasant and meaningful way.

Paulo is a founding member of Kids Hack Day which was created to close the gap between the global hackerspace movement and the lack of technology related play and creativity in the classroom. Paulo is also the CTO of the ed-tech startup ‘Quirkbot’, a microcontroller that let kids build and program their own toys. Quirkbot supports the hacker-mindset encouraging kids to re-invent the things around them and makes it very easy to learn about electronics, programming and mechanics.
