The hi-tech world takes on the appearance of magic with the Myo Gesture Control Armband, moving us one step closer to a touch-free reality.
We’ve moved from keyboards to touchscreens and voice-command, and the evolution continues with this deceptively simple-looking armband that lets you use the electrical activity in your muscles to wirelessly control your computer, phone, and other gadget goodies.
When I first saw this, I thought it would be great for toys but that was about it. However, as the video demonstrates, the possibilities cover a wider range, letting you do everything from controlling remote-control toys to handling slideshow presentations at the office.
People that like developing software can make the armband even more productive by using the API to utilize MYO’s sophisticated hardware to create new applications.
The Myo Gesture Control Armband will be shipping early 2014 but it can be pre-ordered now for $149 at GetMyo.com.
