T. Scott Saponas has devised a system that uses biometric sensors that pick up your arm’s electrical signals to…(get this) play Guitar Hero. I love the use of awesome technology for trivial pursuits. So does Procrastineering, which reported:
One of my favorite projects this year was a muscle sensing system that (among other things) allows you to play Guitar Hero without a guitar. It directly senses the electrical signals in your arms and maps those to the appropriate button presses. This was done by Scott Saponas, a Phd student at the University of Washington exploring a variety of biometric sensing techniques for input.
Be sure to check out the video of Saponas’s system and let me know what you think (please)!
