Myo gesture control armband allows presenters to better engage audience with wearable, touch-free presentation remote.

Introducing Myo for Presentations - News 3Thalmic Labs, pioneers in the future of human-computer interaction, today announces the availability of its newest application for the Myo armband: Myo for Presentations. Myo opens up possibilities for presenters to control slides with natural hand gestures, eliminating the need to hold traditional pointers, clickers, or remotes.

The Myo armband reads the electrical activity of your muscles and the motion of your arm to let you wirelessly control presentation software. In addition to navigating through presentations with hand gestures, users can take advantage of advanced features including a digital pointer and zoom to interact with content in real-time. The application works with PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi, Google Slides, and Adobe Reader.
