Check out Synapse, the 3D printed helmet that morphs into different shapes in response to its wearer's brain waves. Created by Designer, Architect and USC Annenberg Fellow -- Behnaz Farahi (see below), the wearable piece was produced using Autodesk Object Connex500 multi-material 3D printing technology.
With this project, Farahi aims to explore the possibilities of multi-material 3D printing in order to produce a shape-changing structure around the body, as a type of second skin. The motion of the helmet is controlled by an Eletroencephalography (EEG) technology, allowing the recording and monitoring of the brain’s electrical activity. As a result, the neural commands related to the ‘Attention’ level are translated into actual motions, offering a direct interface that enables users to interact with their environment.
