Mobius Robotic Head

ME 10 Team: Taylor Bechtold, Julia Marshall, NIcholas Vigo, Sean Finerty
Advisor:
Debra Offill
Liaison:
Dr. Ward Merkeley

Our project is to create a physical representation of a working human brain. The head will be an interactive exhibit in the Mobius Science Center to educate visitors on the neuro‐anatomy of the brain as well as basic sensory input and response. The model consists of a wire‐frame head, a rotating base, and a mechanical‐electrical brain. It is a multi‐year project where user input will activate head rotation, vision activation, hearing, speech, and basic brain function. We will build and assemble the physical and electrical parts in order for next year’s team to automate the movements and responses of the head and brain.
