Beyond Boundaries: Tech and Humanity Converge

Mar 12, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Dive into a revolutionary journey named “Project Humanity” where we challenge the common belief that 'patients with ALS have difficulty moving their bodies with their muscles. Our system detects minute changes in microscopic electromyography signals of limbs and eye-gaze input and converts them into avatar movements in the metaverse. Join us in the unprecedented world of challenges, in which we have set electromyography signal thresholds, calibration accuracy, UI that suits electromyography signals, and the development of a GUI using eye gaze that does not compromise real-time performance.
