Behind the Scenes at Thalmic Labs - Creator of the Wearable Gesture Control Device “Myo”
The Myo is one of the most anticipated gesture control wearable devices expected to be released to early adopters later this year (my order is already in!).
Based in my hometown of Waterloo, Canada - this video gives a great behind the scenes look at the team, the Thalmic Labs office and some great shots of Myo in action and also provides some more information on the product and their development process which hasn’t been previously released before.
Myo uses the electrical activity from your muscles as your move your hand to detect what you are doing with your fingers as well as the motion of your hand. These gestures control connected devices via bluetooth.
The Myo stretchable cuff has been designed to be one-size fits all (they even considered making sure that arm hair doesn’t get in the way).
The team has confirmed that their developer program in the next few months giving out exclusive access to early versions of the software of the devices.
Thalmic Labs believes that the Myo device could revolutionalize the way we interact with technology - and I agree.
