Amino Lab – With Netexplo Award in background

With a background in interactive art and wearable tech, Julie has created Amino One, which she refers to as a tamagotchi for synthetic biology. A tamagotchi is a Japanese term used for handheld digital pets. A Netexplo 2016 award winner, I caught up with Julie to find out more about the Amino lab, how important and relevant design has been in the creation of this project, how she plans to help people to create insulin and fragrances at home and more.
