Biohacking Your Brain With Science
Think of biohacking as self-improvement by applying technology to ‘hack’ the body’s natural systems. This practice involves the process of applying do-it-yourself (DIY) experimentation towards personal biology. For example, Bulletproof Coffee entrepreneur Dave Asprey successfully marketed the combination of low-toxin-containing coffee with grass-fed butter and coconut oil into a drink now popular with athletes, celebrities, and Silicon Valley nerds. Why? Because of its promise of increasing energy, shedding pounds, and most importantly, improving brain function. Building on this success, the Bulletproof brand has transformed into a machine that sells not only coffee, but books, supplements, and fitness guides to drive both physical and mental performance.
Another proponent of biohacking, although of a different variety, is University of Reading professor and researcher Kevin Warwick. Kevin’s vision is to improve human performance by implanting electronic circuitry directly into his body. Kevin takes the hacking in biohacking literally by turning himself into perhaps the world’s first fully-functional cyborg. His implants have allowed him to control devices based on his proximity to them, manipulate a robotic hand across the world via his nervous system interfacing with the Internet, and even receive brain signals from his wife in the world’s first implant-to-implant communication procedure.
