Inspiration

People in wheelchairs and other disabilities and the elderly

What it does

It uses the myo armband's gesture recognizing capabilities to make things around the house more accessibles

How we built it

we used an arduino to program the myo to control LEDs and a door opening motor

Challenges we ran into

many hardware problems, the motor broke down continuously.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Getting the LEDs to work and creating the model door from scratch

What we learned

We learned that arduino's have many capabilities

What's next for MYo-Home

With better hardware and more time this could be a potential business that could install this system into many houses for eldery people and even in hospitals for patients.
