The Myo armband is a wonderful wearable device that can be used to control robots, drones, and smart home appliances. As this video shows, it is also possible to use this smart wearable device to control industrial robot arms. For this project, two Myo units were used for orientation and gesture detection.
These armbands allow users to control industrial robot arms to pick up objects, manipulate them, and move them around with simple gestures. Pretty cool, don’t you think?
