It’s at home – our MYO

Mar 25th, 2015

Finally arrived!


The Myo armband created by thalmic is released now and Youspi is one of the first who received it. Being more than curious we also immediately tested it. Now we want to share our experiences of using this technical milestone!


What Myo is and how it works


The Myo armband is a technical gadget to operate several gadgets like pc’s, laptops, smartphones or tablets only with a gesticulation. It is the start of a new technical generation where you can control things without being in visual contact or touching a surface. The armband works with EMG sensors, which measure electrical activity from the muscles of your hands. By measuring them it can recognize five poses and using a 9-axis IMU it reads off the motion, orientation and rotation of your forearm. This information is transfered over a Bluetooth connection to your laptop, pc, tablet or other gadgets.

The 6 Pieces of the Customer Experience Puzzle

Jan 19th, 2014
