Microsoft Shows Off It’s Muscles

Posted by TurtleGirl On January - 4 - 2010

Microsoft shows off it’s muscles quite literally with it’s new muscle control technology. This technology allows you the control over devices by simply using your muscle power.

 
Which in my mind opens up whole new possibilities. The new technology uses “electromyography”, or EMG which records the electrical activity of muscles and then translates them signals into instructions.

As computing and displays begin to integrate more seamlessly into our environment and are used in situations where the user is not always focused on the computing task, it is important to consider mechanisms for acquiring human input that may not necessarily require direct manipulation of a physical implement.


 
We explore the feasibility of muscle-computer input: an interaction methodology that directly senses and decodes human muscular activity rather than relying on physical device actuation or user actions that are externally visible or audible.
