Young Bio-Maker Hacks the Hand

Let’s be honest. Who didn’t want a bionic arm when they were young? Well, young biohackers these days are not only fulfilling childhood dreams, they’re also providing affordable alternatives to overpriced prosthetics from greedy medical supply corporations. The current issue of MAKE Magazine features a growing number of young biohackers who are pursuing cutting-edge research in their own spaces. The first biohacker spaces were fueled by the DIY biology movement, in which untrained hobbyists started injuring themselves running biotechnology experiments in their kitchens and garages. As research tools and lab areas become more accessible through communal set-ups like hacker spaces or Fab Labs, biological experimentation is made easier (and safer!) for hobbyists and entrepreneurs alike.
