Human Plus: Real Lives + Real Engineering

This interactive exhibition offers visitors a chance to explore and create a range of low tech and high tech tools that extend human abilities. Visitors experience the creative, dynamic engineering process which involves the user every step of the way.

In Human Plus, visitors can ride a mono-ski in a simulated ski race, control a DJ station using the wheels of a wheelchair, engineer unique solutions to design challenges, and discover how neuroprosthetic limbs can be controlled by a user’s thoughts. Human Plus showcases an innovative field of engineering that improves our lives every day.
