Put on headphones and glasses, close your eyes, and flick on the power switch. Enjoy the brainwave entertainment as you drift into deep meditation, ponder your inner world, and then emerge after the 14-minute program feeling invigorated, focused, and stress-free. Sound and Light Machines (SLMs) produce sound and light pulses at brainwave frequencies that help people sleep, wake up, meditate, or experience whatever state of consciousness the machine is programmed for.
If you're inspired by Maker Faire, the DIY culture, or the Quantified Self movement, build your own Brain Machine. Join us at Artisan's Asylum, 10 Tyler Street in Somerville, for a four-session workshop and construct your own machine from a kit, program it, and time permitting, test it out! In the process, you'll learn soldering, simple mechanical assembly, and simple Arduino programming.
Co-presented by Artisan's Asylum, a nonprofit community workshop that makes metalworking, woodworking, welding, bike repair, sewing, and electronics assembly equipment accessible to the public through vocational education classes, memberships for facility usage, and more.
