In a smart city not only will technology advance, but those who are not capable of enjoying the current technology must also be brought up to par.
What it does
Uses 5 gestures to create messages which could potentially be sent.
How I built it
Using c++ to accept a 5 bit binary sequence, a fist as a 0 and fingers spread as a 1, which is assigned to all 26 letters as well as "." "," "!" "?" ";" and a space.
Challenges I ran into
Limitations in the Myo Armband included either locks in the current position or large delays between a change in hand position to the Myo recognizing the change. These challenges hindered optimized results
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
A working product which would potentially be used by someone who lacks the fine motor skill needed to text on a smart phone
What I learned
What's next for Disability Assist Messaging
This project could be developed into a smart phone app through the android or ios SDKs which contain the same functions used for this version. Predictive text could also be included to reduce message creation time.
