The Thalmic Armband: The Future of Computer Control?
Now this is what we’ve been waiting from; something that was previously locked in the world of science fiction or at least deep in the laboratories at Stark Enterprises!
If you’ve ever wanted to control your computer screen like our favourite, fictional, international playboy Tony Stark then the Thalmic Myo Armband is the toy for you. The armband is a cool, non-invasive bit of hardware that sense the electrical activity from the user’s arm muscles, converts the activity into data and displays the user’s intention on screen.
The days of the mouse are soon to be over!
The Thalmic Myo Armband is completely compatible with Mac, Windows, iOS and Android; it uses a low energy Bluetooth connection that can be used to control a vast array functions, from mouse style point and click to controlling robotic military robots!
Apart from a few installations and ‘motion capture’ style training, the Myo Armband is pretty much ready to rock and roll straight from the box. It’s even possible to use two of them at the same time for a full-on ambidextrous experience!
If you’re interested in being one of the first to get their hands on this new technology, visit the Thalmic website to get yourself on the pre-order list. The Armband starts at $149 USD – find out more!
