Your Next Computer Will Live on Your Arm | Wired Business | Wired.com | Architecture and Design | Scoop.it
Forget about robots rising up against humans for world domination.

In the future we’re all going to be robot-human hybrids with the help of wearable computers. We’ve already seen Google Glass, the search giant’s augmented-reality glasses, and now the latest Y Combinator startup to come out of stealth, Thalmic Labs, is giving us a wrist cuff that will one day control computers, smartphones, gaming consoles, and remote-control devices with simple hand gestures.

Unlike voice-detecting Google Glass, and the camera-powered Kinect and Leap Motion controller, Thalmic Labs is going to the source of your hand and finger gestures – your forearm muscles. “In looking at wearable computers, we realized there are problems with input for augmented-reality devices,” says Thalmic Labs co-founder Stephen Lake. “You can use voice, but no one wants to be sitting on the subway talking to themselves, and cameras can’t follow wherever you go.”

I’d argue that thanks to Bluetooth headsets and Siri, we’ve already been talking to ourselves for the last decade, so talking to my glasses isn’t a huge stretch. But, I won’t deny that it looks cool to casually flick my hand to change the song on my MacBook, which is what Thalmic Labs is promising with its $149 forearm gadget called the Myo (a nod to the Greek prefix for muscle, but rhymes with Leo), which has an adjustable band that can accommodate almost anyone.

petabush's curator insight, February 27, 2013 3:33 AM

Interesting connection of  simple gestures and functions. 

 

'Same old, same old' regarding the aesthetics, and how such a device that works with the body is working and being on the body.

 

Such objects are integrating with the body and the person. through them we have the opportunity to consider issues of embodiment and sense of self. These objects are both an interal and external interface and therefore represent the personal and public body/person. They should not be afraid of demonstrating this!

 

 

Cláudio Braune Gusmão's curator insight, March 9, 2013 8:59 AM

É sabido que embora tenham significado avanços indiscutíveis, o mouse, teclado, monitores foram[são], como afirma Flusser em O Mundo Codificado "Obstáculos para a remoção de obstáculos". Tivemos que nos adaptar a estas maravilhas mesmo que isto significasse conviver com dores (L.E.R.) nos braços e ombros. Gestos são muito mais naturais e desde experimentos com sensores que captam movimento o campo da Interatividade revela uma atraçao incontrolável pela gestualidade para interagir. Quando pudemos acessar o Nintendo Wii, Xbox Kinect, PS3 Move, pudemos experimentar a maravilha da computação física aliada ao gesto. Lindo! Ano passado tive contato com o LeapMotion https://www.leapmotion.com/ que apresenta certos avanços em relação a interação com computadores e dispositivos de uma maneira muito bacana. Fiz o pre-order e devo receber o meu a partidr de maio/13. Esta semana conheci o MYO (https://getmyo.com/) que traz uma outra proposta. Um bracelete (armband) que promete reconhecer o movimento de seus músculos do braço possibilitando diversas combinações interativas para o controle de vários dispositivos. Não resisti e fiz o pre-order apra recebê-lo provavelmente em 1 ano. Amobos LeapMotion e MYO distribuíram os dispositivos para desenvolvedores diversos para que estes desenvolvam applicativos e com isso, ao distribuir efetivamente sua produção os usuários tenham acesso a milhares de apps para utilizar. É isso aí....
