How Silicon Valley Is Trying to Hack Its Way Into a Longer Life

Time has put out solid summary of Silicon Valley’s trending biohacks. The article does a good job of covering the full gamut from well funded research companies to advanced forms of calorie restriction. Here are the bullet points:

  • Calico (Larry Ellison) – Research company focused on Human Lifespan
  • Mathuselah –  Life-extension therapies.
  • Ambrosia – $8,000 blood plasma transfusions from young people to older people.
  • Health Nucleus – Full personal sequence of genome and microbiome plus a MRI and blood tests. Expensive at $25k and founded by Craig Venter.
  • Elysium Health – Basis supplement using NAD+ compound.
  • Nootrobox – Smart Pill supplements (nootropics)
  • L-Nutra – Fasting mimicking diet with a meal plan called ProLon which features 5 days of 770-1100 calorie meals for $300.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
