Watch Tara turn Anthony and Alex into puppets using a hacked TENS unit!

Thanks so much for watching Hard Science! We’re going on hiatus, think of it like summer break. If you want more science AND more Tara be sure to check out DNews: https://www.youtube.com/user/DNewsChannel

Check out DIY Tryin’ to see how they made the hacked TENS unit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9wpirvB5_A&list=UU31lhxGZwVLcchmL0fwWBYg

SAFETY NOTE: keep the electrode pairs on the same side of the body, never crossing the body/heart.

TENS Unit
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transcutaneous_electrical_nerve_stimulation
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is the use of electric current produced by a device to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrical_muscle_stimulation
Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses.
