Lights, Camera, Irrigation


We were excited to have the producer and camera crew of the Korean Broadcasting System’s "Science Café " visit Driptech in Mountain View recently to shoot footage for an upcoming episode of the weekly one hour television documentary.
-
Science Café’s mission is to make practical science issues fun and accessible. To illustrate how technology can be applied to help people in the developing world, the KBS crew also visited Driptech advisor Paul Polak, National Geographic Museum’s “Design for the other 90%” exhibit, The Stanford University Institute of Design , the San Francisco chapter of Engineers Without Borders, and companies such as Vestergaard Frandsen.
-
Members of our Mountain View team demonstrated the Driptech system and enthusiastically provided on camera interviews.
-
Peter awoke ridiculously early in Beijing in order to make a guest appearance via Skype from our new office there.
-
The KBS crew pointed out that although drip irrigation itself may not be high tech, everything supporting the business of bringing it to the small-plot farmers of the world is. We look forward to seeing the show when it’s first aired later this year. Stay tuned!
