I was interested in doing something with the Myo armband. Most cyclists are well aware of the dangers of riding on the streets, especially at night. As someone who rides my bike frequently around Evanston, I created an app that uses the armband's features to improve bicycle safety on the road by sensing the user's hand signals and displaying icons that represent those signals prominently on the phone's screen.

The device is intended to be mounted, either on the user's helmet or the bike itself. The main features include large safety icons and fairly robust motion detection. In addition, by using phones that users already have, it becomes a fairly cost-effective solution.
