Want to activate your project by flexing a bicep, raising an eyebrow, or clenching a fist? The MyoWare Muscle Sensor can help you make that happen.
This sensor uses EMG (electromyography) to sense the electrical activity of your muscles. It then converts that into a varying voltage that can be read on the analog input pin of any microcontroller.
What you will need for this exercise:
- MyoWare Muscle Sensor
- EMG Electrodes
- Adafruit Feather 32u4 Basic Proto (or any other Arduino-compatible that has analog input pins)
- a strip of (3) male/male jumper wires
- silicone cover stranded core wire
- Adafruit USB isolator
- USB mini cable
- USB micro cable
- E6000 or Quick Hold adhesive (optional)
- zip tie
