Superhero Cyborgs: kids designing their own device?

Postby KIDmob » Fri Mar 13, 2015 7:05 pm

Hi all! Our organization, http://KIDmob.org, provides design workshops for kids. Last summer, we held a workshop called Superhero Cyborgs, where kids with a range of upper limb capabilities designed and prototyped their own prosthetics/exoskeletons. Video here: https://vimeo.com/112131677 our website here: http://kidmob.org/superhero-cyborgs. There has been a ton of interest and excitement and we want to do another one this summer - either at Brown University again, or possibly in the Bay Area.

We love the work e-Nable does, and we think there is a lot of potential in partnership for Superhero Cyborgs 2.0. I've been in touch with Andreas Bastian about this - he's excited about it and suggested I reach out to the community on this forum as a first step. Please let me know if you'd be interested or have initial thoughts on what a partnership could look like!

One thought - when you come up with different designs, we could add them to Hand-o-matic so that kids could pick different designs. That'd be easy to add!

I have a Spidey Sense Super Hearing circuit working and I plan to design a small parabolic dish for it. Maybe your kids would want that?
