Bi.xels is an affordable and accessible toolkit to allow everyone to design, create and monitor their own DNA programed display.
Biology today is like computing in the late 1980s, simply awaiting an explosion of innovation. Technologies are developing faster than ever but some key platform technologies are still missing. People need to be able to access biology at an affordable price, in their own homes or workplaces and without enormous infrastructure.
This exhibit shows a personal bio-computer. Users can build simple biologic platforms that can be used to make, create and build with life itself.
