Myo Gesture Control Armband – What has science wrought??

When you read Harry Potter for the first time, you probably couldn’t help but wish that you had some magical prowess. Being able to do basically anything you can think of with a wave of your hand is kind of awesome. While we may not posses those abilities, some gizmos are starting to emerge that will let us interact with technology as if it were magic. Science is kind of awesome that way.

The Myo Gesture Control Armband will let you play puppet master for your games, phone, remote control car, and just about any other electronic gizmo you can think of. It uses the electrical activity in the muscles of your arm to give commands to whichever device you’re hooked up to. One of these will cost you $149, and you won’t be able to get it until early 2014. Obviously this is not a one-trick pony, and they are encouraging people to make up more uses for this armband by giving you the tools to let you manipulate it as you wish.
