MYO’s gesture control armband promises to let
you “unleash your inner Jedi”
MYO boasts that the armband is so fast, it can react to the electrical signal in the muscle a moment before the gesture is completed, making it seem as if the device is reading your mind. The device connects with your mobile and computer via Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, and is powered by lithium-ion batteries and an ARM processor.
The gesture control armband works out of the box with Windows and OS X, and the company is currently in the process of implementing Android and iOS support. Although the device is available for pre-order, there is no specific shipment date, with MYO stating that it is working to get the armband out ASAP and expects that to happen late this year. You can grab one of your own from the company website now for $149.
