This device Gives You Superpowers, Control Drones And Computers With Bare Hands
Different tech companies, both big ones and startups, are developing gadgets that aim to make human and computer interaction more effortless than it already is. It started with going wireless, and it has evolved so much that in order to top others off, a startup created a gadget that can be controlled through mere arm gesture.
This technology is different from the existing ones like Microsoft’s Kinect, Nintendo’s Wii, Sony’s PlayStation Move, Intel’s RealSense technology and the Leap Motion Controller technologies, because it does not require a camera’s line of sight in order for the motion to be detected and recognized, according to Time.
Instead, the armband uses sensors that read the movement of the wearer’s muscle and associates those movements to specific responses. For instance, spreading your fingers wide open is a gesture commanding the gadget to play or pause, while doing a pinching movement with your fingers will control the computer to move to the next slide presentation or to the next song.
Below is a video of the company’s vision on the potential use for the armband:
A complete list of Myo-compatible products is available at the company’s website.
