A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of the puzzle is Embodied Cognition, understand that at some point, you'd be putting your own body to use.

If you're having trouble getting started:

[ hint ]
Throughout the puzzle, you need to be able to get the accumulator to switch colors. How can you get the accumulator to pick up a blue color?

If you're stuck with intersecting lasers:

[ hint ]
Think carefully about which receiver absolutely must be fed by the connector, and which can be fed by the accumulator to avoid intersecting lasers. How can you get the instruments to that color and then maintain it?

If you have figured out the positions but are struggling to charge the accumulator:

[ hint ]
It is possible that you are able to position all the instruments in the right positions, except the accumulator is still blue but you want it to be red. And you're unable to charge it red because there is a blue laser in the way. Can you reposition the instruments? Can you reposition yourself?
