Unlocking the world one gesture at a time
The aim of the hack was to explore the possibility of using the Thalmic Myo Armband for gesture recognition to unlock features, as it is more intuitive to use the movement of our hands compared to inputting through a keyboard. As a proof of concept, I created a Windows 8 password manager application to store all my passwords. The password manager can only be unlocked based on a combination of gestures inputted from the Myo Armband. Authentication and all information about the accounts is securely stored in a web server. It merely takes a set of gestures to access all your accounts. How cool is that?
The future is endless, Myo Armband with very accurate gestures can be used as an authentication mechanism.
