[CoolStuff] Myo Gesture Armband; Unleash Your Inner Jedi

Forget camera-based gesture controls, if you want complete control wherever you are, you need something like the Myo Gesture Control Armband. This innovative new input device communicates with your Mac, PC, phone or tablet over Bluetooth 4.0, and uses proprietary muscle sensors as well as a 6-axis motion sensor to track your movement.

The muscle sensors are advanced enough that it can detect changes in gestures down to the individual finger, and because your muscles pick up the signal to move before they actually do, you may see it respond to your movements before you even move. This should be in your futuristic goody-bag combined with a smartphone and Google Glass.

The MYO works out of the box with things you already have - like your Mac or Windows PC. You can control presentations, video, content, games, browse the web, create music, edit videos, and so much more. And developers are dreaming of new, exciting ways to use MYO every day. The MYO is a whole new way to interact with technology.

  1. This is actually a really great idea. Why try to interpret the position of your hand with an unreliable camera when you could get the information straight from the source. I want everyone to stock their arm out and move one of their fingers around while looking at their forearm. Notice all of your movements are perfectly mirrored in some way by your muscles. Freaking brilliant way to think outside the box!
