Global Biohacking Market: Overview
Experiments in the field of biology includes the use of drugs or gene editing or implants which improve the capabilities or qualities of living organisms. This is done by the individuals and their groups working in a scientific research environment or a traditional medical laboratory. Biohacking is managing one's own biology with the combination of nutritional, electronic, and medical technologies. It is also referred to as Do-It-Yourself (DIY) biology. Biohacking has brought out an absolute change in the field of synthetic biology. Biohacking have developed an urge of development and innovation of new products. It combines the aspects of technology and synthetic biology. Laboratory experiments are conducted scientists and research individuals to explore new avenues in biotechnology, genetic engineering, and molecular biology. Biohackers embark on numerous experimentations on the body such as monitoring of the heart rate or insertion of microchips to control the stress level. Biohackers have developed and are in the process of developing various products to explore the human body. Some of the remarkable products are smart drugs, microchips, magnetic fingertips, brain sensors, RFID implants, bacterial and yeast strains, body sensors, and smart blood pressure monitor health trackers. Currently, wearable analytic technological devices are available widely. The current generation is have a positive approach towards the Biohacking and its devices. Tracking of the heart rate, steps, blood sugar level, and movement of the body, burning calories or any other metrics, can be termed as Biohacking through analytics. The options in terms of Biohacking to keep track of one’s biological performance are wide ranging, innovative, and ever growing.
