You can hack the brain to do new tricks if you know the places where old school mysticism like ''school'' and hypnosis and psychoanalysis and astrology and pavlovian training meet NEUROSCIENCE. Rubber band, magnet, tape, candy, coffee, vitamins and a few exercises can change your brain. We'll show you how.
We launched MakerNurse last year to find inventive nurses around the country who combine the Maker ethic with their own mission to heal patients. After visiting dozens of nursing units, meeting scores of nurses and patients, and testing dozens of medical hardware hacking components, we are finding we can do more to democratize medical fabrication. Makers, nurses and caregivers are at the forefront of this movement. We outline a dozen examples from Brooklyn, TX, CA, MA, VA, and Montana and the maker caregivers behind them. As we create a community that Makes Health, we look at some ideas on how to make it thrive. All of us can DIY Medtech!
Modern technology used in wearable and mobile electronics is accessible to Makers to build and create via the Beagle Bone boards. This provides demonstrations of how makers have leveraged these advances in wearable projects.
Inspired by the Transformer Soundwave, we used the Raspberry Pi to build an interactive costume--it transforms into a video game machine you can play. See the many ways to incorporate electronics in your costuming!
Center Flees are an accelerometer driven, networked LED device, spun like fire poi, making music and light effects. They respond to subtle changes in velocity, making a delicate conversation between performer and technology.
Stringmaking Demonstration The knowledge of how to ply fibers into usable lengths is one of the most basic, essential and important of human life skills, and yet, most modern people have never seen it done. Cordage (string) & rope have long been utilized (and treasured) by humans from every part of the world as tools in fishing and hunting, for carrying burdens, constructing shelters, in textiles, for tying bundles of possessions together, and so on. This demonstration helps bring this essential technology to life.
