WATERLOO, ON--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2014) - Thalmic Labs, the innovative technology company behind the Myo gesture-control armband, welcomed Prime Minister Stephen Harper today for a behind-the-scenes look at the company's flagship product. Prime Minister Harper is in Waterloo today announcing Communitech's advancement in the selection process for the Canada Accelerator and Incubator Program. Thalmic Labs gave the Prime Minister a tour of the company office and labs, including a look at the design and development process as well as a demo of the Myo armband flying a Parrot drone.
