Advancer Technologies have unveiled their new “USB Biofeedback Game Controller” that allows you to harnesses the power of electromyography to control video games with your muscles.
The controller uses a six button setup with the left forearm controlling the B button (RUN/ATTACK), the right forearm controlling the A button (JUMP), the left bicep controlling the LEFT button, the right bicep controlling the RIGHT button, and combinations for UP and DOWN. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
Advancer Technologies explains:
“At the core of this plug-in-play controller is the powerful yet low-cost Arduino UNO microcontroller, a favorite among hobbyist and students, acting as a HID keyboard interface. Integrated with the Arduino UNO are four of Advancer Technologies’ new Platinum Series Muscle Sensors, allowing four muscles to act independently or in combination with each other to control over four buttons.”
