Broncomatic (2009)

A bucking bronco provides an intensive physical experience for a single rider (usually sufficient to throw them off) that is controlled in real-time (by a human operator). This one is different though–it's controlled by your breathing. Created as part of  Bucking Bronco: Adaptive Ride Experiment No.1 with Brendan Walker.
