Meet the Biohackers - BBC News

Bio-hackers are people who want to make their bodies and brains function better – by ‘hacking’ their biology.

That could be as simple as taking vitamin supplements but if you call yourself a Bio-hacker you’re likely doing far more than that.

In this film Catrin Nye meets people inserting technology under their skin, trying to edit their DNA, changing their diet to try and live to 150 and trying to create entirely new human senses.

We met people in the UK, Germany and the US who want to push the limits of what it means to be human.

  1. Any chip in the body can be damage by emp , leaking dangerous toxins , emp can be from solar flares , nukes , and yes comet impact , which would burn all kinds of electronic chips world wide in less then one hour and drive civilization back to the Stone age. So any large comet impact will wipe all chips world wide , that is why old vehicles with no chips are desirable , and crisp bio hacking is wrong , God created man in his image why not be part of that , and most crisp dna swap are from animal DNA. my question is that altered person really human , in horses it's highly value a pure bred why wouldnt a human olso be valuable , once a blood line is tainted , it's value decreases.

  2. OUR HUMAN LAWS , there no laws on hybrids and no legal protection , so do a person looses his rights because it's no longer 100% human but a hybrid humanoid . Even in some cultures, religion are to respect humans life , but many folks may not see hybrids as humans or animal or as not part of creation so why would other cultures respect life that is not human or animal , they might but that a big if , but let be real most country have religions but none of them include respect for cloning of hybrids. It hard to change peoples beliefs on what's considered human or animal but at least both are part of creation , where hybrid equation come in . Unless it's not part of creation and that is a Dangerous precedent , where folks world wide would have less respect for hybrid life or non at all , they may or may not feel guilt , because their is verry fine line , what determine a human life , human soul , and other. How would our creator feel about his creation bein tainted by the few. I don't know for certainty a hybrid has a soul , do you know , if so prove it. And that is DAUGHT folks world wide will have concerning a soul and hybrids .

  3. Finding north? Lol in the morning the sun is in the east and in the afternoon the sun is in the west. From there, do some complex math to figure out where is north. Id rather have an omnitool I can take off at the end of the day and not be worried I messed up my own body

  4. Everybody's talking about how these microchips are going to get hacked and nobody realizes the fact that they can't be read from except for close proximity there's a reason it's called NFC it stands for near field communication no somebody cannot kill you with an NFC chip it's the same technology in your credit cards your phone your damn car keys

  5. I heard Australians can feel directions because they don't use right/left they use north south east west instead. Idk if it's true or not but it's a bit easier than putting titanium bars in ur chest

  6. Could also teach yourself to read a map. I mean, I really hope the NFC protocol is around for a while and that these people have considered what Cambridge Analytica was able to accomplish with people's data they put online (Trump elected and Brexit referendum passed). Are these connections encrypted? are the keys local or in the cloud? I used to be gung-ho to give Google everything about me in the hopes of building my personal preferences and customizations. Not any more. Now I'm trying to scrub myself from the global network.

    "Supposably it's really good for your brain." (o_O)

  7. he needed a chip to tell him this is north. here is what they taught us in school Say it is two o'clock, draw an imaginary line between the hour hand and twelve o'clock to create the north-south line. You know the sun rises in the east and sets in the west so this will tell you which way is North and which way south If you are in the Southern Hemisphere then it will be the other way round and I'm a millennial so don't think I'm a old guy that learned that before the compass was invited lmao chip is a cool idea but what's to stop hackers from getting your info they can clone your phone information so imagine this takes off and you have a heart pacer to help your heart you piss the wrong hacker off they fry your heart and of you want your kid liveing a long and health life

  8. If you want to clear your criminal record, upgrade your credit score, change your grades such as institute and universities kindly contact hackerarena44, you can also text him on 3304069347… He’s good at what he does.

  9. So, you have a guy who shaved off like 0.3 seconds giving directions, a guy who didn't know how to use maps properly and drilled a box into his chest, and a guy who decided to do biological self-experimentation in the country with the most expensive and worst healthcare in the world.

    Yeah, hard pass, thanks.

  10. Now that we know the coronavirus was created by Biohackers at the Wuhan P4 lab, every amateur biohacker should be stopped and imprisoned immediately for life.

  11. Seeing new colors, smelling new odors and hearing voices from further distances will be possible in the future. Also brain implanted computers will allow the telepathy possible.
