The introduction of wearable electronic devices like electronic bracelets will bring profound changes in our daily lives. After the smart glasses, comes Myo, the bracelet designed by the U.S. Thalmic Labs.
It’s enough move your fingers to interact with your PC and other devices: scroll the pages up or down, start playing music or video, rotate the arm as virtual knob to increase the volume, raise a hand to block a play, interact with a presentation of work.
Electronic Bracelets Are The Future of Wearables!
The creators have recorded a series of electrical pulses on the basis of our movements and then translate them into thousands of digital controls like electronic bracelets. They analyzed the connections of the human muscle, both at rest and in action, producing electrical microvolt. Using the technique of electromyography, the sensors placed inside Myo have the ability to amplify of thousands of times the recording of the signal, sending it to an internal processor which performs machine learning algorithms. The device, wirelessly connected (using the bluetooth system 4.0), allows you to interact with remote computers, video games, smart phones and appliances.
Myo improves with time, because as the device is used, it learns to recognize always better the gestures of the user, thereby increasing its accuracy. Obviously the product now is limited to the hands and arms, but in the future may also relate to other parts of the body. The bracelet will be on sale at the end of 2013 to about $ 149.
In fact, the bracelets are items that have numerous uses. One example is the anti drowning and anti loss Endoacustica’s bracelet. For years the device is chosen for the safety of thousands of children.
The bracelet is connected to a base unit which sends an alarm if the wearer comes into contact with the water or moves away over a predetermined limit (usually 50mt). A great way to keep track of their children, but also domestic animals when you are outdoors.
