Hobart High School students will soon be able to control minds… and it’s happening sooner than you think. Mr. Ramos, HHS Psychology teacher, has been looking for new ways to integrate technology into the classroom, and he has made a very interesting choice. Ramos has decided to bring post-secondary tech into the classroom through Backyard Brains, www.backyardbrains.com, a group dedicated to teaching neuroscience to all grades. His first choice is a human to human interface, a group of electronics that allows one person to “control” certain actions of another.

The machine, basically a few plastic boxes and a rat king’s worth of wires, uses electrodes to make muscles contract and move. If you want to see the interface in action, click here, https://www.ted.com/talks/greg gagehow_to_control_someone_else_s_arm_with_your_brain?language=en. The video was shared to Ramos by Mrs. Gill, a fellow Psychology and History teacher, who often shares TED talks with him. The machine will cost about $260, which he has requested from the Hobart Education Foundation. If the grant is accepted, we can hope to see the Human to Human interface in use before holiday break.
