    This is definitly not new – have a look at Face Shift (Arthur Elsenaar, Remko Scha 2005) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_Pp6TP9aLI Interesting part with these projects is the reoccurrence. Original, response, inspiration, etc?

    I just liked this one because the electric pulses are based on the music. He can also use it the other way around. By flexing his muscles he can generate music.
