University of Washington's Elle O’Brien won the Perfect Pitch competition Friday, September 19, at the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering in Seattle.

In Seattle, David Mills, director of Infinity Box Theatre Project, tackles science topics and related social implications in his productions. For the last two years, he’s presented “Thought Experiments on the Question of Being Human,” delving into robots and artificial intelligence in 2013 and, this year, prosthetics and neural enhancements. He matches up playwrights with researchers, and lets them, well, create a story.
