*Zurich Brain Fair 08*

The Brain Fair 08 is an exhibition from March 08-16, 2008 at the Sechseläutenwiese in Bellevue. The theme of the Brain Fair 08 is “Emotions” and it is presented through lectures and artistic performances.

This year the AI Lab had a stand demonstrating a prosthetic robotic hand inspired by the muscle tendon system of the human hand. For the demo we all took turns controlling it via EMG.

It was also accompanied by this fascinating video of a subject in Japan who has lost her right hand, and she has learnt how to use the prosthetic. The video shows her making dinner and pouring her husband sake.
