Description

This will allow control of your servos and ez-script variables with Thalmic Labs Myo. The gestures and accelerometer data is mapped to both servos and ez-script variables. Much like how the WiiMote Control works with EZ-Builder, this is very similar. The benefit is it attaches to your arms, giving you the ability to have the robot mimic your movements.

Once you have installed the drivers and configured the Myo, this control will let you assign servos to movement and scripts to poses.

*Note: If you receive an error when adding this control to your project, it may because the Myo Software version is different than the EZ-Builder compiled version. This is has been a common issue with Myo for developers during their beta development process - do not be alarmed if you are receiving an error and the version does not correspond. We will update the Myo DLL with every release of EZ-Builder to ensure it is the most recent.
