MindBot 6-11 years
mindbot

Mindbot is a rover controlled by your level of concentration, an open experiment to get you closer to Brain Computer Interface. By measuring your brain’s electrical signals, it can adjust the engines’ speed. The greater your attention, the faster the engines can turn. All it takes is just close your eyes and take a deep breath, and you’ll slow down the rover and even get it back. Will you be able to control a machine by controlling yourself?
 Workshop organized by DiScienza.
