With hands-on displays and full-body experiences, this exhibition explores the inventive and ingenious medical and industrial breakthroughs that have helped enhance the human experience. Visitors can move a ball with their mind, manipulate a robot arm, race against a Paralympian, use night vision to see in the dark, and explore how technology can provide camouflage and make you invisible.
Mind Control – Compete against a friend using a brain-computer interface to control a ball using the power of your mind.
Motion Control – Use a gesture interface to control a robot arm and move a ball.
Voice Control – Use voice commands to interact with appliances in a model house.
Body Technology – Interact with different body systems by moving a screen over areas of a human body. Investigate what you could augment in various areas of the body.
Lenses – Experiment with a number of different lenses and investigate the effect on what we can see.
Augmented Surgeon – Try to put the augmented body parts into the correct areas of the body.
UV Camera – View your skin using a UV camera. Experiment with sunscreen and see how much sun damage you have.
What To Augment – Share your ideas on how you would like to augment your body.
Exoskeleton – Climb into an exoskeleton and control an on-screen avatar to investigate what you could do with enhanced strength.
Jet Pack – Put on a helmet and fly a virtual jetpack.
Prosthetics – Use a sensor to control a prosthetic arm.
Race Against A Paralympian – Prosthetics are advancing at a rate that they may soon surpass the ability of natural limbs. See how you fare in a race against a paralympian.
Bionic Eye – View the world through a bionic eye simulation.
Wind Tunnel – Test different accessories in a wind tunnel to see how they feel and perform.
Train Your Brain – Play a brain training game and investigate how it might affect your performance.
Ethics Quiz – Consider ethical questions of body augmentation via an eye gaze controlled quiz.
Braille – Read Braille messages using your sense of touch.
Camouflage – Explore how technology can provide active camouflage and make you invisible.
Infrared Camera – View your world through an infra-red camera and large screen.
Hearing Test – Test your hearing range and discover how technology can enhance your hearing.
Tunnel of Darkness – Explore a tunnel without using sight.
3D Printing – Feel how scientists are using 3D printing to communicate images via touch.
