BIXELS is a STEAM education product at the intersection between physics, computation, biology and design. It uses gamification to allow a wi(l)der range of applications and explorations of biological interfaces. It allows you to design, create and interact with your personal 8x8 bio-pixel display, such as making pictures, gifs and a variety of simple games.
While doing this it teaches the foundation of how to program with DNA & to build a biological circuits in comparison to traditional code & electronic circuits. In addition, it demonstrates the possibilities of interacting with bio materials through physics and material explorations. To achieve this we used a unique technique to program with DNA, called Cell-Free Technology.
