- On the computer: Arcturus BioCloud allows beginners to design basic bioengineering experiments through an online interface. The service sends the directions to a pipetting robot at a remote lab and then displays the results. $80 and up
- In the kitchen: Using kits from Synbiota, home hobbyists can start engineering color-generating E. coli with little more than pipettes, tubes, and the kitchen sink. $395 and up
- At the hackerspace: OpenTrons produces a pipetting robot 10 times cheaper than conventional machines. Biohackers can download instructions for an experiment, calibrate the robot, and then simply hit "run." $3,000 and up
