Remote Controlled Humans?!

In moments of weakness, some have wished that they could control others. Using neuroscience, human anatomy, and electrical engineering, this winter break, that wish will become a reality!

By hacking a remote-controlled car and the human sense of balance, we will create a non-invasive device that can alter the motion of a human subject (the instructor).

The material in the class is largely self-contained. Some background in engineering and/or human biology may be helpful. The most important prerequisites are persistence and maturity.

Note: While not harmful, altering the sense of balance can feel unpleasant. So a staff member will be the human subject for these devices. Parental permission is required for any students who wishes to test the device.
