I developed a fully functional polygraph machine as part of my work within the transmedia collective ‘Counterpilot’. Custom software inferred a lie likelihood from biometric stress markers obtained from three different sensors. My custom built hardware broadcasted OSC messages that were used to dynamically alter the audio and visual environment of the performance. Truth Machine explored truth in a world of fake news and alternative facts.

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So to everyone that supports this place - thank you.
