Make your individual 3D-printed masks that reacts to your feelings
This wild masks which seems to be like a cross between Hi there Kitty and a face-hugger is made of soppy electronics and coloured liquid. It’s based mostly on a Masters thesis challenge made by Sirou Peng, Adi Meyer, and Silvia Rueda and makes use of Harvard’s Mushy Robotics Toolkit.
The masks is mapped to the wearer’s face and makes use of a Myoware muscle sensor to evaluate the patterns your face makes if you smile, frown, or act involved. As soon as the masks senses these feelings it injects or sucks out liquid via the capillaries, exhibiting the world how you actually really feel in a really bizarre manner.
Why would you do that? Nicely, Burning Man is over so possibly you could possibly us it as a cool Halloween challenge or, barring that, use it to broadcast your feelings to a wider viewers. The world, as they are saying, is your 3D-printed, soft-robotic silicone masks.
