In Science Channel's all-new series Hacking the Wild, "Digital Survivalist" Andy Quitmeyer goes deep into some of the most remote parts of the world armed with nothing but everyday technology and science to survive the wilderness. Each of the six, hour-long episodes follow Quitmeyer as he hacks his way back to civilization using a hybrid of time-tested outdoor survival skills and a backpack's worth of wires, laptops and tracking devices. Hacking the Wild premieres Wednesday, February 15 at 10 PM ET/PT. From a remote Pacific Island to backcountry of Alaska, Quitmeyer's adventures land him in some of the most treacherous regions on the planet, where he must adapt to each situation on the fly with his unique and innovative problem-solving skills. Using only the materials he has, including a coconut shell, an eyeglass holder and a stainless steel coffee mug - along with his knowledge of nature, he hacks repelling devices, traps, alarms and a heating system. He is also tasked with finding and cooking his food, and carefully navigating his way to stay alive until he can make his way back to civilization.
Andy Quitmeyer attempts to survive in the wild while using everyday technology to aid him.
