TUINHACK Challenge:
GutĀ Feeling

bassler - humans?What make you happy is what makes your microbes happy. Research shows more and more that the microbes in our gut have a profound influence on our mood, memory, behavior and mental and physical behavior.

This should not be too surprising. Just think of traditional expressions like “trust your gut feeling” and “love goes through the stomach”. We are outnumbered 10 to 1 in our own body when considering the number of cells. 100 to 1 in terms of information stored in the form of DNA.

Design indoor/outdoor places to relax or get energized, dishes or drinks that stimluate creative thinking. Develop ways to communicate with our inner microbe-cosmos.

Think about technical implementation, hardware, software, user experience, marketing, promotion and economic model. Make it so!
