The mouth has been a vital tool for completing ordinary tasks since the dawn of man.
But could the mouth have different functions from the ones we are accustomed to?
Dr. Michelle Korda, Francesca Perona and Luca Alessandrini believe that the increasing integration of technology in our daily lives is dominated by repetitive finger tapping movements on flat screens.
As part of MOUTHY, they aim to challenge these established methods of interaction with our everyday objects and digital interfaces and they are developing a mouth controlled prosthetic device that can interface with new applications.
This open hands on and 'mouths on' workshop invites you to rediscover your mouth as extraordinary tool and to collaborate with them in the process of designing potential applications for this mouth controller.
What if we could use it to drive our bike, scooter or car?
Would it be funnier to play pacman using your palate as a joystick?
Could we express feelings or disappointment via text message just by biting our lips?
The future of the mouth is yours! Come and help to discover it!
This event is run in partnership with Science Gallery London.
