I’m going to write a small sample on the EMG information we can get of the Myo armband. EMG stands for electromyography (EMG) sensors. The Myo armband have 8 electrical sensors, this sensors measure electrical signals traveling across the user’s arm, which the Myo armband translates into poses and gestures. In the next image you can see a live representation of this EMG data in a chart and how it changes based on an arm movements.
In order to get this data, we must subscribe to the EMGDataAcquired() event. Take a look at the following sample code: in the EmgDataAcquired event, I display the values of the 8 sensors in a console app using different colors.
The running console output app will display something similar to this image
Next post I’ll write on some UWP app for Myo!
