Chris Heathcote
Designer & Gastronome


Chris, a designer and computer programmer, asks how computers will change your life, and what happens when technology and genetics collide. The answers are complex and  we may not want to know them. His talk created more debate in the canteen than almost any other.

Chris is a London-based designer, interested in how new technology changes people’s lives: mobiles, GPS, RFID, physical computing, and recently urban screens and interactive environments; and how this changes the way people interact with each other.

By night, he’s a knife wielding, cocktail shaking, chemical reacting, yeast taming gastronome.
