‘Mind Pilot’ Installation by Loop.pH

This London Design Festival, the spatial laboratory Loop.pH invite visitors to pilot a textile airship using the power and focus of their minds inside the Design Museum's atrium.

What to expect

Saturday 15- Sunday 23 September 2018

During London’s Design Festival 2018, spatial laboratory Loop.pH will animate the Design Museum atrium with a spectacular immersive, interactive installation Mind Pilot. The exciting installation will allow you to pilot a helium filled, textile airship with the power of your mind.

This provocative installation explores a sense of belonging through a new technological reality. The lightweight, airship will be operated and able to fly in multiple directions within a tethered framework. A single pilot remains grounded and connected with a headset to a series of personal monitoring devices with whole brain EEG sensing and heart rate.

Mind Pilot will encourage the idea of an inclusive future where people with varying physical abilities can use technology such as mind power to experience and operate flight.
