Gesture based control done differently

Gesture based control done differently

The folks at Thalmic labs are doing gesture based controls their own way. This is much different from Leap, but very, very interesting. I like the concept better than some of the alternatives for a couple of reasons:

  1. You can see when someone is actually controlling something. The armband is a great visual cue that someone is interacting with something.
  2. Measuring electrical impulses or muscle response seems to be a much easier problem to solve than tracking appendages and interpreting movement.

Take a look at the video for MYO on the main page, and the behind the scenes if you’re interested in seeing more. Very cool.
