Pinfold Technologies has a completely novel approach to ultrasound sensing. We're commercialising technology developed at UCL to create devices which are low cost (made from off-the-shelf ICs) but competitive with high-end ultrasound equipment. Our patent-pending technology also solves a number of open problems in the field, such as being scalable to high channel counts (enabling, for instance, 2D matrix arrays which produce 3D images) and having a wide sensitivity bandwidth, crucial for monitoring next-gen ultrasound-based therapies.

The company: Gastronaut (www.thegastronaut.com) is a multimedia company run by producer Stefan Gates, creating major kick-ass sci-comm/food stage shows, TV projects and books. The main show currently in pre-production is the headline show for Big Bang Fair ‘Gastronaut and the Quantum Mechanical Chocolate Factory’, a Wonka-esque fantastical food/science show involving robots, chocolate engineering, flying fish and instant strawberry clouds. Other shows, TV and book projects are also ongoing, and most of the company’s work involves exploring, playing, ideas-generation, building stuff, assessing risks and blowing things up. The office and workshop are full of noise, laughter and general trouble-making. Culturally it’s Radio 6, with occasional bouts of Rudimental and One Direction. Lunch is always provided.
  
 +
Job: Key demo developer – a bright, fun, hard-working, creative person with excellent research and DIY skills and a great grasp of multidisciplinary science communication who can help build and deliver the planned show for Big Bang Fair, including prop-building, risk assessment and a bit of production management. You’ll be working with Stefan and two brilliant co-presenters on the main show, and will be on-stage to present it. You’ll be expected to help out with other Gastronaut projects and shows, too (including prep and on-stage work and YouTube videos). There’s occasional weekend performance work, and time off in lieu is given for this. You should be happy to have a DBS check carried out, and a clean DBS certificate is essential to the role. NB previous key demo developers have had a great time and gone on to jobs in TV.
  
 +
Skills required: Excellent DIY/engineering and research skills, a great understanding of multidisciplinary science communication, live events and general nerdery. You should be responsible, creative, self-disciplined and happy to work independently. You should also be a lot of fun to be with, adaptable and understanding of the strange demands of the media. It would also be helpful (though not obligatory) for the candidate to have media production skills for YouTube videos, electronics-building ability, experience of working with children and a full UK driving licence.

I made this electronic garment with nibs - http://vimeo.com/24923549 -
 
for my fashion degree graduation project.  And since then I had to
 
travel with it for a couple of shows.  Unfortunately, it broke during
 
the last move and it has be ready for another show the beginning of
 
July.
 
The guy I last worked with has become very busy with his own full time
 
job so I am looking for someone that can fix it and also maybe suggest
 
ideas to make it a lot more durable.
 
I have very little knowledge of electronics and it would be really
 
great if anyone might be available for this job.  Or if you know
 
someone else who might be interested in making a little bit of cash,
 
or just generally interested in this kind of projects, please send

== Measurement System with BLE Sensor Nodes and Mobile Hub (Freelance) ==
  
I'm currently working on a project requiring a hardware hack that's outside the scope of my own capabilities; I want to create a wireless fob that a smart phone (Android, to start with) can detect at approx. 100cm. Any protocol (inc. Bluetooth) will be ok for the POC/prototype but there is a strong commercial application for this tech, so ultimately a low-power protocol will be preferable. There has been a useful tech discussion thread on the hackspace groups channel entitled "Wireless Hack for Smart Phone" which you may want to take a look at first.

We are a small high-tech company (based in Cambridge) looking for a low-power, wireless measurement and data logging solution for deployment in different indoor environments.
NB: This is also listed on the (very empty) NonCommercial board
+
*Several wireless measurement nodes periodically transfer data to a central hub via low-energy wireless technology (BLE). <br /> Average power consumption <1mW, powered by PV module with rechargeable battery or supercapacitor. <br /> Measurements: two or more ADCs, I2C for sensors
 +
*The hub (smartphone or tablet) displays the information from all nodes and uploads it via mobile network (GSM) to a server accessible by us.

Deep Tech Startup seeks Talented RF/Microwave Engineer

Posted 30/07/19

Pinfold Technologies has a completely novel approach to ultrasound sensing. We're commercialising technology developed at UCL to create devices which are low cost (made from off-the-shelf ICs) but competitive with high-end ultrasound equipment. Our patent-pending technology also solves a number of open problems in the field, such as being scalable to high channel counts (enabling, for instance, 2D matrix arrays which produce 3D images) and having a wide sensitivity bandwidth, crucial for monitoring next-gen ultrasound-based therapies.

We're looking for someone ideally London-based and experienced in RF/microwave circuit design. No ultrasonics experience is necessary, but it's nice to have. Particularly interested in hearing from software-defined radio hobbyists.

We are in the process of raising an angel round, and your involvement at this stage will have a big part in shaping the company.

If you think this sounds interesting, please get in touch!

HTML5/JS simple web app

Posted 1/SEP/2015

Hello,

I am producing a video series for the Guardian where we want to build an app that our presenter can use in her native L.A.

To illustrate the positivities of Open Data we would like to build her an app that uses her geolocation, crime rates and public transport tables to provide the safest route home for her.

We will need to build this app in the next 3-5 days and I am hoping to work with the Times in LA to use info they have collected to make this map.

The app can be quite scaled down and the interface basically non-existent- this is a beta tool that shows whats possible with open data.

If interested please get in contact ASAP.

Thank you! budge.caroline [AT] gmail.com

iOS / BLE App

Posted 6th May 2015

A research student based at Royal College of Art / Imperial College is looking for a developer to build a simple iOS (iPad if possible) app that will talk to a BLE device (currently working with https://punchthrough.com/bean/ but anything would do). On top of getting and sending data from the BLE device I will need to build a GUI, but that will come in a later stage, so not strictly necessary at the moment but experience in this area will be considered as a plus!

More about their SDK here https://github.com/PunchThrough/Bean-iOS-OSX-SDK

Please contact me at giulio.ammendola [AT] gmail.com for discussing budget and specifics. Thanks!

Measurement System with BLE Sensor Nodes and Mobile Hub (Freelance)

Posted 30th March 2015

We are a small high-tech company (based in Cambridge) looking for a low-power, wireless measurement and data logging solution for deployment in different indoor environments.

  • Several wireless measurement nodes periodically transfer data to a central hub via low-energy wireless technology (BLE).
    Average power consumption <1mW, powered by PV module with rechargeable battery or supercapacitor.
    Measurements: two or more ADCs, I2C for sensors

Android App Developer

We are looking for an android app developer to help build a simple location aware app. It needs to look slick and could probably be finished in a weekend.

We are building this with a view to expanding in the near future, so this is an opportunity to get in at the ground floor. We are happy to provide remuneration in the form of either company shares now, or cash within three months post completion (though probably sooner); whichever is preferable.

Successful completion of this project will likely lead to inclusion on our other exciting projects. If you are interested, or know of someone that might be, please email me directly at j@om.ni or call 07952142629
