My Brain – your Arm! lol – it really works!!!
In a recent Ted Talk Greg Gage demonstrated how one person could control someone else’s arm just by using their brain!
Watch as Greg wires up a few volunteers from the TED audience to show how this could be done. This is brilliant and kind of creepy too. DIY neuroscience! I want to try that!
Hmmm, now will just have to brush up on my electronics…
You can order some awesome DIY Kits from Backyard Brains and mastermind your own experiments! Backyard Brains is the brainchild of Greg Gage and Tim Marzullo. They have a number of Get Started Kits like ‘RoboRoach’ which will guide you through building a backpack for a cockroach (those you have to find on your own) and control it like a Robot!
