MYO – wearable gesture controlled arm-band



using new communication technologies, ‘MYO’, the wearable gesture controlled arm-band by thalmic labs is capable
of measuring electrical activity in muscle movement instantly. the device provides a seamless way to interact with computers –
giving users an accurate sense of control. with the wave of a hand, ‘MYO’ transforms interactions by simply utilizing
the electrical activity in muscles to wirelessly control video games, phones, and other digital products.


created with third-party developers in mind, the API lets programmers utilize its sophisticated hardware to experiment,
build and benefit from the applications found within the uniquely engineered software. the armband uses bluetooth 4.0 to
communicate with the devices it is paired with. featuring on-board, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, and a ARM
processor outfitted with muscle activity sensors –  the system integrates a 6-axis inertial measurement unit for fully
immersed interactive experiences.
