Like all hackers, we are looking to subvert the dominant paradigm of life itself. How can we use technology to enhance our raw abilities, specific skills, overall health, or well-being? How can we usher in an age where we not only fix what is broken, but we make our world and ourselves, better? Just as the early computer hackers challenged the status quo to introduce us to the real possibilities of computing, we dare to sit on the cutting edge to create our own miracles from the raw materials of biotechnology.

 

The Biohacking Village (BHV) is a collaborative movement focused on breakthrough information security, DIY biology, human augmentation, medical technology, and related communities in the biotech ecosystem. Our village will excite, elucidate, enlighten, and engage participants in the technical, mechanical, procedural, and human side of biohacking.There are multiple instances of DIYBio overcoming conventional science which we support and present through a compendium of talks and demonstrations. We invite you to come and expand your understanding of what it means to be a biohacker! 

 

We are open to all bio related talks, a few areas of interest are: 

  • Data     

  • Pharma     

  • Genetics/Genome     

  • Nanotech     

  • Augmented / Virtual Reality     

  • Bioinformatics

  • ​Molecular Biology     

  • Biomimicry     

  • Sex toys     

  • Nootropics      

  • Implants     

  • Bio weapons     

  • Biolab

  • ​DIY/ Open Source     

  • Population health     

  • Devices      

  • Prosthetics     

  • Disability Studies   

  • Neurological

  • ​Gynecology     

  • Entrepreneurship      

  • Blue/Red/Purple teams     

  • Legacy equipment integration

  • Food 

  • ​911 Systems/Emergency Systems      

  • DNA (CRISPR, Malware, etc)    

  • BioAuthentication Space

Your submission will be held to the following standards:
 

  • Scientific rigor 

    • Was the project conducted in accordance with the scientific method, and were any hypotheses properly investigated? Are less-scientific aspects of the topic acknowledged as such? If you’re not making any scientific claims, does your technology actually work? Or, if it was a failure, is it acknowledged as such with a detailed and interesting description of lessons-learned?

  • Significance 

    • Is your project significant to the biohacking and scientific community? Does it add value, for either scientific, technological, ethical, cultural, or artistic purposes?

  • Originality 

    • Is your project an original work, or at least sufficiently different from the work it builds on? (Exceptions can be made, especially for introductory & educational 101 talks.)

  • Coolness

    • Extra points will be given for the “cool” factor. We want to be wowed. We want our jaws to drop in wonder. We want to be blown away with the inspiring possibility that you have made reality. Amaze us.
