We found out that the Myo Armband didn't have native Linux support - so we decided to provide it!

We reverse engineered the armband's bluetooth protocol to provide a shared C library, libmyolinux, which allows the armband's raw packet data to be interpreted and displayed to the user.

To demonstrate the effectiveness of our library, we worked on two proof-of-concepts: -A graphical manipulation pygame, running on Linux, which is controlled with the Myo -A robotic vehicle, controlled by a Raspberry Pi (embedded linux), controlled with the Myo

All packet processing is being done on Linux. Happy Hacking!
