MYO’s gesture control armband promises to let you “unleash your inner Jedi”

 By offering the ability to wirelessly control your smartphone or computer via gestures. It does this by detecting the electrical activity in your arm muscles as you move and responding accordingly. The device is now available for pre-order with shipping slated for late this year.The MYO is a one-size-fits-all armband that is turned on and off via a hand gesture said to be unique enough to avoid accidental activation. Once on, users can control their computer or mobile device by a combination of gestures and arm movements, with the band being able to detect both. MYO reports that the device can detect subtle movements, as well as keeping track of where the user’s hand and arm is at for precise control.

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.
