Description

                The future is now for medical science, and no place is that more evident than at Houston’s world-renowned Texas Medical Center (TMC). On Saturday, September 30, 2017, The John P. McGovern Museum of Health and Medical Science – a TMC member institution – brought to Houston a fascinating look into the ingenuity and creativity behind developing groundbreaking engineering solutions that improve human lives every day, through the traveling exhibition: Human Plus: Real Lives + Real Engineering.   

Through this exhibition guests will be able get their hands on a broad range of actual ability-enhancing tools. Exhibits include a simulated downhill mono-ski course; a DJ station built out of a wheel chair and controlled by the wheels; a touch panel that translates music into vibrations guests can feel; a hands-free computer mouse, controlled through slight movements of the head, that allows the guest to type messages, edit photos or watch videos; and a neuroprosthetic limb that can be controlled by a person’s thoughts! Guests can even re-design themselves in a full body simulation and test body enhancement technologies that supersize their strength, showcasing the new horizon of engineering that was once the stuff of science fiction.

On display at The Health Museum through January 1, 2018, this exhibition offers young and young-at-heart guests the chance to explore and create a range of low- and high-tech tools that extend the abilities of the human body.  The exhibition will take place at The Health Museum, 1515 Hermann Dr. Houston TX, 77004 during regular museum hours. Access to the exhibit is included in the price of admission, $8 kids 3-12 and seniors 65+, $10 for adults.
