What is a cyborg? Are you one? Do the sensors in the smartphones we carry make us cyborgs? Or do these need to be directly connected to our body – implanted? Or does being a cyborg start earlier, when we depend on technology to take part in everyday life?
We, the Berlin-based organization Cyborgs e.V., are looking for answers. We’re organizing a barcamp and invite interested cyborgs and non-cyborgs of any profession to discuss and hack with us.
How do apps and gadgets change our behavior? What is life with implants like? How can you hack a prothesis and what software do you need to do it? What can we build? We invite hackers, researchers, developers and everyone interested.
Saturday, June 21, 2014, 10.00 am to 06.00 pm
Tickets are €5 to defray our costs. The ticket is free for members of Cyborgs e.V.
Update: There will be a box office for spontanous attendants. If you plan to show up, pleas send us an e-mail to hello(ät)cyborgs.cc.
What’s a barcamp?
Barcamps are democratic conferences. Every participant is invited to provide a talk. In the first hour all participants will vote on the order of the talks. After that, the talks will be scheduled to start every full hour. If you plan to deliver a lecture, please send us an abstract via e-mail. Talks and workshops can be about hacking projects, transhumanism, philosophy, cyborgism, prosthetics, genetics etc. – the sky is the limit.
You are journalist and want to visit our conference? Please send us an e-mail.
We’re working on it! 😉
