Created by Peter Coppin, Michael Parris, and Martin C. Martin.
Humans both shape and are shaped by their machinic surroundings. To embrace this idea, we created a robotic exoskeleton that surrounds the right arm of a human subject.
The human subject uses a hand controller to move the machine encased arm. This attempt by the subject to move the encased arm programs the robot. After a time the robot begins to control the human arm based on its "learned" movements, thus "re-programming" the human wearer.
This robot can also interface with standard telephone lines, allowing a human robot wearer to be controlled from any touch-tone telephone in the world.
