Raspberry Pi-powered body illusion lets you experience Parkinson'shypnosec (2231454) writes "Analogue, a theatre/art group, has developed a interactive installation dubbed Transports powered by Raspberry Pi that lets you experience Parkinson’s symptoms. In the illusion, a person’s mind is tricked into believing that his/her hand is the hand shown in some point-of-view video and the motorised glove worn by the user gives the feeling of tremors associated with the Parkinson’s. The glove recreates tremors, the ones experienced by patients, at 6 hertz – the upper limit of what is experienced by people with Parkinson’s disease. Users are asked to follow instructions fed through headphones and using the glove, which creates an illusion of a virtual limb, they are supposed to mimic the movements of a man on the screen and manipulate real cutlery as he does."
