Human Interface Workshop

Have you ever dreamt of controlling the people around you? Family, friends, co-workers, even total strangers? Well with this workshop, you will learn to harness the power of neuroscience and biotechnology using the Backyard Brains Human-Human Interface. With our electrophysiology setup, you will learn exciting neuroscience concepts first-hand as your brain sends an electrical impulse to your arm's muscles, telling them to move, and when your muscles move, this generates an even larger electrical signal. You'll take that electricity, then further amplify it and inject it into the nerves controlling another person's arm.

Workshop Overview

All participants will have their very own Muscle Spikershield Bundle (Arduino controller and Muscle Interface) that they can use during the workshop and then take home. The workshop is designed to run about two hours, with informational presentations, guided to programming the arduino, and questions/discussion.

Workshop Objective

Each attendee will recieve their own HHI. What does that mean? Well, that depends who you are:

The Controller:
Your new Human-Human Interface is ready with all of the materials you'll need to connect yourself with another person. It comes with an Arduino microcontroller (it's like a small, easily programmable computer), already programmed to facilitate your newfound dreams of power. Plugged onto the Arduino is our Muscle Spikershield, which lets the Arduino understand the signals coming out of your body. With this you can see the electricity in your muscles as they move, but more importantly, use them as a signal to turn on the stimulator.

The Controlled:
The sensation of totally losing free will can be a little weird at first, so just relax. You'll be hooked up to the all-important TENS stimulation device, which harmlessly delivers electricity to your arm's nerves. The other person, the Controller, will be using the electrical signals from their voluntary muscle movement as a signal to turn on the stimulator. When this happens, your nerves will interpret the electricity as a "contract" signal, and tell your arm to flex.

With all this, you're ready for fun and educational neuroscience experiments for students, kids and adults.
