Makers, developers and hobbyists that are interested in making projects involving muscles and reactions from muscles may find these new Arduino MyoWare muscle sensors a great addition to their project.
MyoWare has been created to measures muscle activity through the electric potential of the muscle, commonly referred to as electromyography (or EMG for short) and then trigger a desired response.
Watch the video below to learn more about the new muscle sensor and how it might be able to hep develop your next project. The makers of MyoWare, Advancer Technologies explains more:
“When your brain tells your muscle to flex, it sends an electrical signal to your muscle to start recruiting motor units (the bundles of muscle fibers that generate the force behind your muscles).
The harder you flex, the more motor units are recruited to generate greater muscle force. The greater the number of motor units, the more the electrical activity of your muscle increases. The MyoWare will analyze this electrical activity and output an analog signal that represents how hard the muscle is being flexed. “
The MyoWare muscle sensor project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $10,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
So if you think the MyoWare muscle sensor is something your project could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge from $25.
