Biomechatronics integrates biology, mechanics and

electronics.

In a special live edition of the programme, BBC Click’s Kate

Russell was joined by Dr Ravi Vaidyanathan from Imperial

College London, along with PhD students Chris Caulcrick

and James Clarke, to demonstrate the power of this

technology.

They showed off an armband that can ‘listen’ to muscle

movements in order to control an artificial hand – and

described how biomechatronics could be used by gamers to

play a computer game simply by blinking.
