Teleoperating robots using Myo and other smart wearables is nothing new. Researchers have come up with a new approach for augmented tele-operation of robots where wearable haptic feedback devices are combined with teleimpedance techniques for control of a robotic manipulator in real-time.
As this video shows, this wearable system can be used to control a KUKA robotic arm with a drill. The operator can regulate the stiffness and pose of the robotic hand. Arash Ajoudani has shared more info about this robot here.
