Thalmic Labs has come up with a cool, innovative technology—“MYO”—that allows you to interact with the digital realm seamlessly with just a wave of your hand or a twist of your wrist, without the need for physical controllers.

This new “wearable gesture control” technology consists of an armband that detects electrical activity in your muscles and wirelessly control your computer, phone and other favorite digital technologies.

Compatible with gadgets the user probably already own,—like Apple computers or Windows PCs—the MYO can be used for presentations, gaming, web-browsing, music creation, video editing and more.
