A Gesture That’s Pure Magic! Thalmic’s Disruptive Technology

MYO two_rings

Gadget aficionados, I can truly say that the future is almost here. Thalmic Labs has introduced the next great thing in disruptive technology.

The MYO Gesture control is a one size fit all Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy Armband  that communicates with devices that it is paired with through the electrical activity of your musicles.

Simple tasks from presenting from on your computer presentation to more complex tasks of  moving, starting, stopping and flying your Bluetooth helicopter are now as difficult as raising your arm up or down.  Control of devices are now literally at the snap of your fingers.
