  • Have you ever looked at the superpowers of non-human species and wondered how we could attain the same? Could humans harness the powerful legs of a cricket to propel themselves with ballistic limb acceleration? Or camouflage themselves in an instant like the brilliant cuttlefish? In Cyborg Enhancements, you will investigate the superpowers of the natural world and re-appropriate these for human advancement. 

    Students will explore the power of digital design (computer-aided drafting, 3D modeling), rapid prototyping tools (laser cutters and 3D printers), microelectronics (Arduino), and body attachment techniques to create adaptive devices that push the limits of what it means to be a human.
