Chain of Thought

A journey through the miracle of human thinking

Brain Parcours

Our mind is one of the last mysteries of humankind. While we still don't know exactly how the brain works - how we think, store knowledge, or recall information – we can associate, abstract, plan and create. Only a human mind is capable of exploring the variety of things one can do with a strawberry, for example.

Explore the beauty of human thinking by following a thought chain in augmented reality. The 3D printed brain is based on a MRI scan of a brain, the computer-generated supporting structure is inspired by the branching structures found in the brain’s neurons and neural networks.

Simone Bucher is Communication Project Manager at ETH Global.
