Playing with muscle sensors and servos

I’ve been playing around with a muscle sensor, that works by attaching electromyography (EMG) sensors to my arm, then connecting that to my arduino board, then to my servo motor. I am really interested alternate ways we can physically controlling things with our bodies.

Today I got it to work!



Chat with Sophie

Today I had the COOLEST chat with Prosthetic designer, Sophie de Oliveira Barata, who is the creator of The Alternative Limb Project . I went to her studio and had a chat about her process and some of her designs, and she may need some help over the summer!
