Texas Instruments serves the world's most innovative electronics companies, as well as hobbyists just like you, helping to develop new ideas that change the way we live. By providing semiconductor technologies that promote greater power efficiency, enable more features, enhance performance and deliver more value, TI expands the possibilities every day for how we learn, connect, grow and discover.
New understanding of the brain is making it more hackable, launching us into the realm of sci-fi possibilities. We will talk about the brain's pinouts and wiring, along with its mechanisms for change (i.e. learning). We will then discuss various technologies and techniques currently being used to interface with the brain and augment human potential in amazing ways.
With new electronic and rapid prototyping tools, cheap microprocessors and sensors, 3D printers and printed electronics the world around us can be hacked, twisted and extended with functionality that it is not supposed to have. Everyday physical objects, both living or artificial can be made interactive, responsive and digital: living plants that control music, human bodies that transmit sound, touch screens on water and 3D printed interactive eyes. We can enhance our world with new experiences and functionality that will educate, delight, entertain us and make our lives better in countless ways that are yet to be invented.
Terry Dame aka ElectronGong performs original groove driven music on invented instruments made from recycled objects. This year's performance will feature the "Horn of Plenty Sounds", an interactive musical sound sculpture.
