Brendan Walker shows us how we can be thrilled
Science: [so what? so everything] case study Brendan Walker shows us the science behind thrills and puts some Bankers through their paces on a bucking bronco.
The bankers are hooked up to a telemetry system which includes a heart-rate monitor, accelerometer and video camera. Physiological data and facial expressions are captured and beamed live into the control station where a member of the public is controlling the ride, making it more or less intense.
Brendan uses this data to helop develop the rides of the future. Foe more information on Brendan visit Science: [so what? so everything].
