Myo gesture-control band for sale on Amazon
Device reads electrical signals in a wearer's arm muscles
Thalmic Labs' Myo armband, a wearable tech device that responds to the electrical signals in your arm muscles, is now for sale on Amazon.com for $199 US.
However, Canadian customers who haven't pre-ordered a Myo will have to wait a little to get their hands (or arms) in a band - the device is only available on the U.S. Amazon site and only ships within the U.S.
The Myo uses a biosensor which picks up electrical impulses from the muscles in a person's lower arm, so users can control computer programs, video games, drones and smartphones. It is compatible with both iOS and Android operating systems.
The Kitchener, Ont.-based company has already shipped Myo bands starting last July to early adopters who pre-ordered the device.
Customers can order the Myo from Amazon in black or white.
