    Microsoft to release muscle-based controller?

    Microsoft to release muscle-based controller?

    Published May 2, 2012 |


    A patent has been issued granting Microsoft free reign to develop a game controller that is stimulated by your muscles. Yes, you read that right, your muscles.
    The patent allows Microsoft to develop Electromyography (EMG) technology that will allow users to interact with smartphones, consoles and music players by simply moving their muscles. It has been discovered that MS are likely to be developing a sort of strap for consumers to wear on their arm in order to control their devices, controller free.
    We heard about this idea a while back now, but wouldn’t this be an awesome idea to launch alongside the improved Kinect system for the next batch of consoles? How would you like to see this device used? Let us know below.

    Microsoft patents EMG muscle controller, is one step closer to Air Guitar Hero

    Posted Jan 4th 2010 2:04PM by Ben Gilbert
    Our elderly readers may remember all the way back in October of 2009 when we showed you the first video of Microsoft Research's muscle-based game control interface. While it'd be a safe bet to say that the project is still very much in the prototype phase, the experimental division of Microsoft recently filed a patent application for the "Wearable Electromyography-based Controller for Human-Computer Interface", effectively bringing us all one step closer to a future with fully realized air guitar.

    Sure, the interface could be used for "computer stuff" or something we suppose, but what'd be the fun in that? Though, as Engadget points out, we're not likely to see anything more solid on this in the near future -- most Microsoft Research projects are "pretty far from market." That being said, a combination of muscle sensor-based control and the not quite 1:1 video capture of Project Natal could produce some rather intriguing results. Your move, Big M.

    I think this is pretty useless especially when it comes to video games. Just gimme a controller and let me be.

    I agree. This other stuff is just getting ridiculous.

    Saw this years ago. Its just a patent. It may or may not ever come to fruition in gaming like it is used elsewhere.
