Extrapolation Factory

Biofutures, 2015 

The Extrapolation Factory has teamed up with The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose inviting museum visitors to explore intriguing tidbits and provocative examples of real work being done using synthetic biology and envision their own near-future use of gene-editing. These depictions can be submitted to an ecosystem simulator, where the concepts and choices are impacted by other submitted stories. The interactive exhibit is planned to be on display in the museum until 2026.
