Biomedical Engineering: Biohacking Michael Qi Nicholas Morin ? What exactly is

Biomedical Engineering? The bridge between engineering and medicine by combining aspects of both disciplines. Current Biomedical engineering research Prosthesis is a major topic in biomedical engineering (limbs, eyes, hearing aids, bionics)

Tissue engineering (skin, bones and small organs) RFID and Microchip implants Current Biomedical engineering research (continued) Ongoing research on Organ 3D printing Bringing us towards a world without the Organ Donor

List Experts say within the next 10 years The Cyborg Project Dr. Warwick, Coventry University

Pioneer of modern bionics Started with RFID controlling a mechanical hand To what levels? German biohacker: Lepht Anonym

Surgically implanted magnets into her fingertips Able to feel magnetic fields

Since doctors wont help her, she does it in her own apartment, sterilizing her equipment with vodka. Good anesthetic is largely impossible to buy, so she screams a little, and sometimes passes out. But its worth it, for whats on the other

side. (Borland, 2010) ! Problem: BioHacking Frank Abagnale: Cybernetic Crime at the FBI https://youtu.be/vsMydMDi3rI?t=3557

Problem (continued) More technology in the human body means more risk Security breaches Tracking people who have RFID implants or

other electronic devices. What can we do? Not a whole lot at the moment... As the engineers of tomorrow we need to be aware of the risks and mitigate them Ensure laws and regulations follow suit. It will be our duty to educate these officials.
