New Video: Myo Armband Teardown #WearableWednesday
The Myo armband is a gesture controller that triggers a variety of actions on the computer based on the contractions of your muscles and the movements of your arm. It is intended for a variety of applications like controlling a slideshow presentation, controlling video playback while you’re AFK, gaming, and more. We couldn’t help but peek inside to take a closer look at how this interesting design was put together.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
