Muscle Movements detected by MYO gesture-control armband

Being able to utilize your muscles to provide input to a computer is something that has been tried before and not had a whole lot of success. But now, enter MYO, a new gesture based wireless input device that senses the contractions in your forearm. It is available now for pre-order for about $150. This device does not yet quite have the accuracy of some other 3D mouse products but it is making leaps and bounds in this area. I know it’s farfetched but if we keep creating these unique devices, you may be able to one day put them all in a suit and be an everyday super hero.

Check out this video, it’s really neat.
