Lecture: Peck as You Go - An Alternative Payment System

Peck As You Go is a semi-fictional, experimental system designed to provide an alternative, de- centralized method of payment. It uses hacked micro-organisms living inside the human mouth as a form of electronically-controlled biological currency which can be exchanged digitally and physically.

Should the payment system become a reality, could it provide better financial sustainability? How would it work, and what are the social and cultural implications that may rise as a result?

Raph Kim is London-based ‘biohacker-designer’ investigating possible roles of micro- organisms and their impact on society. He will present his current research findings and processes behind Peck As You Go system.
