Project Description

Biotic Games (2010)

In the expectation to advance bioengineering research through the concept of crowd-sourcing, Stanford University researcher Ingmar Riedel-Kruse and colleagues developed a series of “biotic games”, digital games that incorporate biological processes of real micro-organisms. These include variations on Pac-Man, Pong, and pinball games. Crowd-sourcing principles would make the actions of individual players in the games contribute to realizations of complex bioengineering tasks.
