John Willshire

John comes all the way to Brighton to have a face-to-face chat with Jeremy about the troubling ethical questions around who gets to design the future. Together they discuss the contrasting parenting patterns on display in Man Of Steel and Interstellar. Also: the HR issues raised by Ex Machina and Top Gun.

Warning: contains mental images of Michael Caine as the interface of the connected home that is the Fortress Of Solitude. Not a lot o’ people know that.

Chris Noessel

This one gets super-nerdy. Jeremy and Chris geek out about interfaces in science fiction films, from Logan’s Run to Iron Man, applying the principle of apologetics along the way. To kick off, Chris humours Jeremy’s crackpot theory about the Star Wars universe, and to wrap up, Chris unveils a very special event taking place the evening before dConstruct.

Located at
the Brighton Dome

Located in the all new Brighton Space Dome, 2,000 miles above the city of Brighton and Hove. Please make your way to the Brighton Dome Space Port, for your complimentary low earth orbit shuttle service.


Looking for somewhere to stay while in this friendly, futuristic city? Check out the Brighton page on AirBnB for local dwellings.

There are plenty of hotels too: Ibis, MyHotel, Artist Residence, Jury’s Inn, and Fhloston Paradise to name just a few.

To eat

For traditional earthly sustenance, you could beam yourself to the weekly Street Diner food market. There are also lots of ground-level restaurants and cafés nearby, where you can grab a bite during the lunch break (the lunch break lasts for an hour and a half so you’ll have plenty of time).

For liquid refreshment, the popular fuel known as ‘coffee’ is available from purveyors such as the Small Batch Coffee Company (on New Road, very close to the Brighton Dome Space Port).
