Bodyhacking describes the many types of self-directed human development. For one person, bodyhacking looks like piercings, tattoos, and meditation. For another, it looks like the newest prosthetic limb. It can include specialized biometric tracking devices, or cognitive enhancers. At the heart of bodyhacking is a DIY ethos. Whether it’s self expression or quality of life, bodyhackers believe in the right to practice informed bodily autonomy.
The current state of bodyhacking science and techniques.
Network with like-minded individuals and industry experts while learning about new and exciting technology.
One of a kind sessions, discussion groups, and interactive events.
BDYHAX is a 3 day bodyhacking conference complete with speakers, workshops, interactive experiences, and more than a few chances to party with your peers. While doing our part to “Keep Austin Weird,” we’ll transform the beautifully remodeled Sheraton into a Transhumanist paradise from Feb 2nd-4th, 2018.
Join us for a special presentation from DARPA Biological Technologies Office Director Justin Sanchez. From programmable microbes to human-machine symbiosis, biological technologies are expanding our definition of technology and redefining how we interact with and use biology.
The Biological Technology Office (BTO) is DARPA’s technology arm focused on leveraging advances in engineering and information sciences to drive and reshape biotechnology for technological advantage. BTO is responsible for all neurotechnology, human-machine interface, human performance, infectious disease, and synthetic biology programs within the agency.
BTO is bringing together leading-edge technologists, researchers, start-ups, and industry to solve problems that matter and drive technological revolution.
