New Video Reveals MYO Armband's Leading Edge on Gesture Control Market

With Millions of Views on YouTube, Thalmic Labs Goes Behind the Scenes With Release of Second Video

WATERLOO, ON--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2013) - Today, Thalmic Labs, creator of the MYO gesture control armband, is launching a new "behind the scenes" video that gives viewers more in-depth information about the technology behind the innovative MYO armband as well as the extensive in-house capabilities of Thalmic Labs. The company has realized over $4 million in pre-order sales and excitement continues to build around the device.

The first video featuring the armband was wildly successful, receiving over 2 million views to date. The new video shows the MYO armband in action through multiple demonstrations, from wirelessly playing Tetris to controlling the movement of a ball.

"Since there has been so much excitement and positive feedback surrounding the work we're doing on MYO, we wanted everyone to have a 'behind-the-scenes' look at the groundbreaking technology we're using at Thalmic Labs," said CEO and Co-Founder Stephen Lake.

The MYO armband measures electrical activity in users' muscles giving them the ability to wirelessly control and interact with computers and other digital consumer products. MYO recognizes the electric impulses in users' muscles so it can anticipate gestures almost before they happen.
