Blinkbot

Hopefully you’ll already have had the pleasure of meeting everyone’s favourite new addition to our window display on  eyelids, Blinkbot.

Blinkbot’s turned out to be a big hit across the generations: we truly adore watching people’s faces after they’ve “high fived” Blinkbot, as there’s always smiles. Not so sure our ears are quite so keen on those over zealous high fivers who tend to be a tad too forceful with their technique!

Unfortunately, it won’t be that long till Blinkbot’s job is done and he’ll be moving out of Weybridge. So, if you’ve been hesitating about introducing yourself to him, don’t hold back as he’ll only be around for another few days.

I know some of you have been intrigued as to how he was created, so I thought I’d share with you some of the technical details in case you were inspired to try to make one yourself.

K’nex powered by arduino. It senses when a hand is being placed over it using a light dependent resistor.

Please share any pics of your creations with us on social media as we’d be very interested to see how you’ve got on.

Charles Bonnet Syndrome

Charles Bonnet syndrome describes the visual hallucinations that some people can experience with such eye conditions as macular degeneration.

Visual hallucinations can also occur for people in the early stages of Parkinson’s disease, even if they don’t have significant visual loss.

These visual hallucinations can be experienced as prominent hallucinations (e.g. seeing faces in carpets or wallpaper), passage hallucinations (e.g. a figure or animal passes by in the peripheral visual field) or presence hallucinations (reporting the “feeling” that someone is nearby)

These types of episodes can be very frightening and often, suffers are reluctant to mention them for fear they might be an early indicator of memory problems.

Recent research has shown that with eye disease there is no connection with such hallucinations and dementia.
