Das Modul verbindet Anwendungen der Medizintechnik mit Do It Yourself (DIY) Ansätzen. Dadurch wird das tiefere Verständnis von Medizintechnischen Geräten durch einen direkten, interdisziplinären und möglichst selbstgesteuerten Zugang gefördert. Basierend auf verschiedenen elektrophysiologischen Messmodulen (EMG, EKG, EOG, EEG) entwickeln die Studierenden im Team Ideen für innovative Projekte. Erste Prototypen werden mit den Mitteln der Digitalen Fabrikation hergestellt und getestet.

Urs Gaudenz aka Gaudi

Urs Gaudenz is an engineer and interdisciplinary scholar working in Lucerne, Switzerland. He was born 1971 in Seattle USA. He got his master in science of Microtechnologoy from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne. Subsequent to that he attended Post-Graduate programs in international business and innovation-management. In 2016 completed the course of study in the Principles and Applications of Synthetic Biology as directed by Georg Curch, Professor of Genetics at Hardward Medical School. He is founder of GaudiLabs, a third space for third culture. He is a founding member and member of the board of Hackteria International Society. He is currently on the faculty of the Lucerne School for Applied Science and Arts. In his professional practice, Urs Gaudenz makes use of various forms of work and expression such as prototype development, open scientific research and collaborative workshops. He is combining his different backgrounds to explore new technological and cultural fields and his works often emerges out of the void in this intersection. Remarkable in his work is the wide span from speculative and futuristic to very functional and applied. He worked with and was inspired by Dr. Marc Dusseiller - dusjagr labs, the Swiss Mechatronic Art Society, the GynePunk, BioDesign for the Real World, Sci | Art NanoLab Summer Institute at UCLA, LifePatch. He was invited to give workshops or exhibit projects at renown institutions and festivals such as Ars Electronica - Projekt Genesis, ISEA - International Symposium on Electronic Art, DOCK18, space for media cultures of the world, Kapelica Gallery / BioTehna, Schloss Werdenberg, N/O/D/E festival, Medialab-Prado Madrid, CYNETART-Festival - Trans-Media-Akademie.

SATW Info 2/15 – Biotechnology for all / DIY in bioanalytics: doing and grasping it yourself.

«Do it yourself» in der Bioanalytik – zum Download auf Deutsch

"Biotechnologische Forschung findet heute nicht mehr nur in spezialisierten Labors statt. Eine wachsende Gemeinschaft von Biologen, Bastlern und Technikbegeisterten experimentiert in Küchen, Werkstätten und Eigenbau-Labors. Einige sehen in der Demokratisierung der Biotechnologie eine Gefahr; andere die Chance für ein besseres Verständnis von komplexen wissenschaftlichen Zusammenhängen in der Gesellschaft."

The article from SATW Info 2/15 – Biotechnology for all / DIY in bioanalytics: doing and grasping it yourself is available for download in German, English and French. The pedagogic conecpt and educational kits were developed during a project funded by the Swiss Academy for Engineering Sciences (SATW), together with hackteria, M. Dusseiller and U. Gaudenz, and FHNW School for Lifesciences, Dr. D. Gygax, during a workshop with an interdisciplinary group of participants. More info here.


How to control someone else's arm with your brain | Greg Gage

As grad students at the University of Michigan, co-founders Tim and Greg often interacted with schoolchildren during neuroscience outreach events. We often wanted to show real "spiking" activity to students, but this was impossible due to the high cost of equipment. By using off-the-shelf electronics, we designed kits that could provide insight into the inner workings of the nervous system.

"Simplicity: We know it when we see it" | George Whitesides

Simplicity: We know it when we see it -- but what is it, exactly? In this funny, philosophical talk, George Whitesides chisels out an answer.

"Why toys make good medical devices | Jose Gomez-Marquez

We develop empowerment technologies for health. We believe that innovation and design happens at the frontline of healthcare where providers and patients can invent everyday technologies to improve outcomes. By radically democratizing the tools of medical creation, we seek to enable front line patients and providers to invent answers to disease burdens.

SENI GOTONG ROYONG: HackteriaLab 2014 - Yogyakarta

HackteriaLab 2014 – Yogyakakarta is a two-weeks making-oriented gathering of researchers, artists, scientists, academicians, hackers and whatevers in Yogyakarta. It was hosted by LIFEPATCH - citizen initiative in art, science and technology and co-organized together with HACKTERIA | Open Source Biological Art in collaboration with various regional partners. As a web and community platform, Hackteria tries to encourage scientists, hackers and artists to collaborate and combine their expertise, write critical and theoretical reflections, share simple instructions to work with life science technologies and cooperate on the organization of workshops, festival and meetings.

How to use this wiki

Dear participants, please make sure you prepare your account and get some first experience in using a wiki, in this case it's MediaWiki the same software on which the famous wikipedia has been created. The previous link directs you to many instructions on how to use a wiki. look at it.

You should have received a login by now. Try it out and create a new page for your own project notes, give it a reasonable name and make sure you add the folling line at the end of the page, so it will be sorted all in the same category.

[[ Category:MedTech-DIY ]]

Please write a few sentences about yourself, add links to your other websites, blogs, biographies, artworks.

  • try to add images
  • "internal links" to other pages on the hackteria wiki
  • "external likns" to websites
  • embed a youtube video?

You can always click the "edit" link on this or other pages to see how stuff has been written in the mediawiki language.

"The innovators of 1600 were hackers before the word existed; they proposed open sharing of ideas for the benefit of humanity. Isaac Newton, Robert Hooke, Descartes, and the other scientists of the late 1600s could not have inaugurated the greatest scientific innovation of all time—the invention of modern science itself—without the Hackers of the 1600s. The Renaissance’s secretive structure was hacked, and it inspired the Scientific Revolution."

DIWO Culture

HaSTA DIWO Culture : Hacking art/Sci/Tech & Activism

To engage with the most pressing issues (environment, social injustice, globalisation) of society, artist have embraced new transdisciplinary practices, which combine the use of open source tools (OST) and hacking strategies in a collaborative manner with "others". DIWO (Do It With Others) Culture will introduce such strategies through case studies, hands-on experimentation and team projects to the students. This first edition will focus on OST for environmental monitoring and artistic interpretation.
