Bio-OS is in Beta development
i-DAT is developing a range of ‘Operating Systems’ to dynamically manifest ‘data’ as experience in order to enhance perspectives on a complex world. The Operating Systems project explores data as an abstract and invisible material that generates a dynamic mirror image of our biological, ecological and social activities.
Bio-OS allows intimate biological information to be collected from the users body. This is achieved through:
- The use of biological databases that monitor dietary habits, through food consumption (calorie intake, etc) and exercise
- Biological sensors which measure psycho/physical changes within the body (psychogalvonometer, blood pressure, electrocardiogram, respiration, EEG, etc)
- Behavioural sensing, through audio visual monitoring (eye-tracking, speech patterns, motion tracking, etc)
- Temporal behaviour, through reflexive pattern tracking (models of activity over a period of time)
Bio-OS offers subtle and complex combinations of biological (in its broadest sense) sensing technologies to build data models of a body over time. These data models are stored locally as bioids and collected within the users personal data-base building a biological footprint alongside their individual ecological footprint. The users Avatar can be used to reflect and distribute the biological model.
