Control a Robot Using Your Brain!

Pre-register for your chance to control a robot with just your mind!

Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) allow interactions with a computer system by means of one’s brain activity. The most common type of BCIs measure the electrical activity of the brain through Electroencephalography (EEG) by electrodes set non-invasively.
To build a BCI, a person is instructed to perform one or more mental actions (e.g. imagine you are moving your hand, or imagine an object), after which a classification algorithm is trained to recognize the recorded activity. For each class of mental activity recognized, an action can be associated and triggered on a computer system. This system can be, for example, a wheelchair, a microwave or …a robot! Come and try it out!

About the

Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a madcap celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Festival makes science accessible, interactive, and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.

The Cambridge Science Festival was founded by and is produced by the MIT Museum.
