Brain Waves Operate 3D-Printed Helmet like Metallic Alien Cocoon
Behnaz Farahi's wearable piece Synapse morphs in response to the activities of the wearer's brain
Synapse is a 3D printed helmet from Behnaz Farahi that morphs into different shapes in response to the wearer’s brain waves. Farahi is a designer, architect and Annenberg Fellow at the University of Southern California interested in the exploration of interactive environments and their relation to the movement of the human body.

This wearable piece moves and morphs in response to the activities of the brain. The aim of the project is 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. It also attempts to explore direct control of movement with neural commands from the brain, so that we could effectively control the environment around us using only our thoughts.
