In the first year they were using the Motion Prosthesis
which f18institute build for Stelarc, in the second year we've build a new one with a different design and
technology, developped for the purpose of an Opera
costume. Therefore we used a wireless MIDI transmitter,
batteries and high pressure compressed air onboard.
Also we changed the construction, now the pneumatic
actuators are based at front which suits better with the
idea of frontal staging as it is done in Opera. The device
is a kind of robotic jacket which moves, remote controlled,
each arm in three degrees of freedom.
