In this second installment of OpenAir Weekly Adam chats with superstar collector/OpenAir technical director Chris Chung about our open hardware direct air carbon capture machine: VIOLET – what it means, where the idea came from, and where it’s all headed as of October 2020. VIOLET, OpenAir’s founding mission which got us rolling last year, will be the world’s first and only miniature open source direct air carbon capture (DACC) machine. Chris is one of the key contributors to the project and his energy, creativity, leadership and general commitment to getting sh*t done are keeping us on track and moving us forward to our goal. In this conversation Chris and Adam get into the origins of VIOLET, and discuss the significance of the project within the broader context of both open source/maker culture and Direct Air Carbon Capture R&D.
