Myo - Gesture Control Armband

Myo is an armband that uses a Bluetooth 4.0 connection, to work electronic devices with the movement of your hand / arm.  It is compatible with Macs and Windows PCs and developers are working to make Apps for iOS and Android devices.   It works by detecting electrical impulses from the muscle and the movement of the arm.
It will come with a rechargeable battery that, by the time it is up for sale, they hope will last several days. 
The Myo is 149$ , Thalmic Labs are taking pre-orders and they ship all over the world for an additional 10$.  The sting is taxes and Duty please make sure you check this what it will cost you to import it into your country.
There is so much more to say but the 2 videos we have in the article should explain all.
