The Myo gesture and motion control armband lets you use the movements of your hands to effortlessly control your phone, computer, and so much more. The first units will begin shipping early 2014. Pre-order today to reserve yours.

Your muscles talk, Myo listens

Myo armband senses gesture and motion control to seamlessly interpret what your hands and fingers are doing, and transmits that information over Bluetooth to communicate with your favourite digital device.

Eight EMG sensors, a nine-axis IMU, and ten thousand ways to use them
With eight advanced EMG sensors and a nine-axis IMU, the Myo gesture control armband has been engineered to recognize a set of hand gestures, along with the speed, direction and angle of your arm. The nine-axis IMU is made up of a single chip containing a 3-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis gyroscope, and a 3-axis magnetometer.

"Very cool and impressive.
I hope this finds its way into our future soon."
- Steve Wozniak
