The psychogeophysics walker is a mobile, iconic platform for both urban and field exploration. The walker, designed around a disabled or aged person's walker or trolley, incorporates a range of sensors logging both the users biological/emotional states (EEG, skin resistance, skin temperature, blood flow and breathing patterns), and the local environment (magnetic field, high and low frequency signals, temperature, soil resistance where available) enabling a series of maps to be constructed of walked locations and correlations to be established between psyche and geophysical environment. The walker is optionally equipped with inscription device and laser scanner, enabling local fields to be either engraved on specific surfaces or such surfaces to be read back (the stone tape).
