Another great night in the weekly lab. Check out the video - Mayank Sharma demos the Myo gesture control device.
Mayank flew all the way from Delhi, and decided to spend a night with us. That's about 7,000 miles! He plugged in the Myo to his laptop and started programming an Arduino-mounted LED to respond to human gestures.
During a ThoughtWorks company get-together in New York yesterday, employees took part in a 'Smart Home Jam'. We seeded the activity with a few LittleBits circuits and some instructions to get off the ground.
We have been experimenting with full-body interactions in the lab of late. Yesterday we were invited to install some of our work at NYC MediaLab's Future Interfaces event:
In the installation, the position of people's hands are used to control variables on virtual synthesizers in real-time. The screen also shows a visual display to help particpants work out exactly how they are affecting the sound.
