nom-o-tron, mk II

Look, we have a shiny new Nom-O-Tron to take to Ireland this weekend for our Cakes in Space event! My co-author Philip Reeve built it, using the blindingly amazing power of SCIENCE.



See you soon, Mountains to Sea festival! Here's the previous Nom-O-Tron, which was state-of-the-art when it came out. But it had synthesised so much space food that it was falling into disrepair and its software needed upgrading. (These scientific machines go obsolete so quickly! The bane of our existence.)

And I've been busy packing. It always takes me ages, I don't know why.
