Abstract

Biological HCI (Bio-HCI) framework is a design framework that investigate the relationship between human, computer and biological systems by redefining biological materials as design elements. Bio-HCI focuses on three major components: biological materials, intermediate platforms, and interactions with the user. This framework is created through collaboration between biotechnologists, HCI researchers, and speculative design researchers. To examine this framework further, we present four experiments which focus on different aspects of the Bio-HCI framework. The goal of this paper is to 1) layout the framework for Bio-HCI 2) explore the applications of biological - digital interfaces 3) analyze existing technologies and identify opportunities for future research.
