The Myo armband is a wonderful wearable device that can be used to control robots, drones, and apps. We have covered a bunch of cool Myo controlled robots here in the past. This video shows how KITECH’s humanoid upper body robot can be manipulated using this armband. EMG signals from the forearm are used to control a 2 DOF wrist and grasping movement of the hand.
The robot can pick and place objects and grasp them while applying the right pressure.
