Biohackers Crowdfunding Risky Experiment to Develop Infrared Vision Using Modified Vitamin A
An intrepid group of four biohackers hope that the replacement form of vitamin A, known as vitamin A2, will compensate completely. A2 is found in freshwater fish, and can be extracted (with some effort) from their livers. The group has created a project based on a “Microryza” crowdfunding model, and is now funded to the tune of $4,000.
Much of the capital raised will be used to procure the vitamin itself. Additionally there will be funds for sensitive equipment to measure the electrical responses of the eye as its spectral sensitivity changes. Their results will be published in an open, peer-reviewed research journal.
The diet the biohackers will use has been developed by computer engineer Rob Rhinehart, creator of a successful life-optimizing drink known as Soylent. …Vitamin A, and its precursors like beta-carotene, are metabolized into different forms that are used in various ways all throughout the body.
