Get Your Hands in the Game: The Myo™ Armband & Oculus Rift

We’re bringing virtual reality to life today with two Myo armbands and an Oculus Rift. Take a look at our first ever in-house demonstration of the Myo armband with the Rift and learn about our journey in bringing this demo to life with a few “magical moments” along the way.

Our software team created a Unity API that allows any developer to quickly and easily use the Myo armbands as controllers for their games. The code will be made available to developers in the future, allowing them to drag and drop the package into their project for easy integration.

Meet us at GDC: If you’re a developer who will be in San Francisco during GDC, drop us a line at to see the demo in person at one of our private evening events next week.
