Abstract/Artist Statement

Recently, the smartphone camera has replaced the digital camera, and the selfie stick was invented to provide a convenient method to take photos of yourself. However, most of the selfie sticks don’t come with controllers, or the controller is limited to shutter control. MYO Camera’s aim is to break the limitations of the current wireless camera controllers and provide additional features in manner that is easy and natural to use. MYO Camera is an android camera application that controls various camera features like zoom, flash, and autofocus using Myo Armband. The app interfaces with the Myo Armband, which is is a wearable Bluetooth device that senses arm muscles and sends data to the connected device. After connecting the Myo Armband to the app, simply spread your fingers to take photos, wave your hand inward to turn flash on and wave outward to turn flash off. The autofocus feature will activate if a user double taps their thumb and middle finger. MYO Camera will be free to purchase once it is published to Google Play Store and Myo App Store.
