SoftBots µ-Residency with Ralf Schreiber & derstrudel @ BioTehna, Ljubljana

SoftBots µ-Residency In a 4 day µ-Residency our guests, Ralf Schreiber & derstrudel (Christian Faubel), the Masters of Workshopology, together with dusjagr, are transforming the BioTehna Lab into a space for experimentation on minimal electronics and explore new grounds of combining their experiences with new bioinspired approaches of slimes, bugs, worms, biological oscillators, hydrogels or […]

hackteria visits NCBS

Moth BioElectroni(x)cs group After meeting Aravin at a performance during Experimenta, we were happy to be invited to visit his research group at NCBS, the National Centre for Biological Science, where in the group of Prof. Sanjay Sane they study the ecology and neurophysiology of insect flight. Especially interesting were the “BioElectronix” instruments they built […]

New BioElectronix Circuits

We made new little circuitboards for our BioElectronix activities. These should simplify the use of various applications to create hybrid living-digital systems and will be used in future workshops. Sofar we have the HEXAtrode multiplexer (4051), the H-Bridge motordriver (L293) and a relais board (6V relais with NPN transistor). More soon… For more details about […]

Workshops in Zürich

More detailed information see the hackteria wiki Hackteria DIY Microscopy | Sa & So 12/13 February, 11h – 18h, MechArtLab Zürich Overview/Einführung Through a simple hack, every webcam can be turned into a useful digital microscope, allowing the magnified observation of life forms, analysis of biological motion and form, as well as audio-visual interpretations for […]

Introducing the HEXAtrode 0.1

The HEXAtrode is a DIY approach to making and using the concept of MicroElectrodeArrays (MEA) with an arduino, multiplexing and simple materials. With the goal to be able to measure an array of local electric potentials from living systems (electrically active cells, such as neurons, muscle, plants…) What is Multiplexing The arduino, for example, has […]

Hackteria BioElectronix arduino-clone

Description For the use in various workshops the arduino platform has been proven to be very useful to introduce the participants into simple programming and physical computing. Both as a souvenir and inspiration, we have developed an arduino-clone, which can be soldered by hand in the course of 30 minutes and be kept and used […]

Hackteria workshop @ ISEA2010 RUHR

Overview We are happy to hold a workshop during ISEA2010 in Dortmund. Andy and Marc will go into various aspects of the hackteria project, create an atmosphere of a bio-hacklab and introduce the participants and visitors into the world of living microorganisms, how to look at them with self-made microscope and how to combine the […]
