I joined the beta program over at Thalmic Labs a few months back, interested in their Gesture Recognition products. The MYO is a great device which offers a broad array of applications for realtime visuals. As a proof-of-concept, I made this video, demonstrating the how the MYO reacts to motion in 3-Dimensional space.
The accuracy and latency are fantastic. The latency is much better than expected(especially considering that we used 3D transformations for our demo). It was actually a little too sensitive for some scenarios, and for this demo I had to average the values to make it move smoothly.
I'm interested in collaborating with others in exploring how to utilize this product to create dynamic live visuals. I'm particularly interested in working with Musicians, Dancers and Theater techs. If you are interested in non-profit health related projects I can imagine applications for the diagnosis of physical tremors, proprioception disorders, balance, mental health or muscular dystrophy as well.
