this is an awesome open project. it would be nice to place all these bio
hacking related kits in a central repository/shop. I am surprised but
impressed it has got so much backing. Awesome!

There is a new event in SF which will be held monthly, to showcase people's
biohacking inventions - sensorium at Sera Phi. It would be awesome to get
people from this list to show their creations, and/or give talks there. Let
me know if you have things to bring.
