Burning Brain-Controlled-Brain

A group of crafty artists are currently building a 15-foot brain to be controlled by participants’ EEG signals, via a portable headset, which will transmit information to LED lights and flame-shooting rods embedded within the brain structure, creating a feedback loop with the participant. The giant sculpture is to be unveiled at this year’s Burning Man.

The group has an Indiegogo campaign underway, and you can read more at Boing Boing.
