oh-my-myo

Overview

Ever wanted to reach just a little bit further? oh-my-myo allows for the remote control of a robot arm via the Thalmic Labs Myo wireless control band.

Tech

There is a robot arm, fashioned out of a combination of stepper motors, plastic gears, legos. The motors are controlled via an Arduino microcontroller. The controllers interface via serial COM with a laptop piping in the parsed output from the Myo c++ executable file, which was tweaked to provide accurate data on the position and location of the user's hand and their current gesture.
