We spend a lot of time trying to send messages to each through talking, texting, emailing, and more. What if you could send a message to your friend by simply raising your eyebrows?
In this wearable electronics project we'll learn to make muscles send text messages! This learning guide will show you how to use a MyoWare muscle sensor and a Bluefruit Feather microcontroller to transmit a signal through the phone to Adafruit IO and If This Then That to trigger an SMS. Let's get started!
For this project you will need:
- MyoWare Muscle Sensor
- EMG Electrodes
- Adafruit Feather 43u4 Bluefruit LE
- Lithium Ion Polymer Battery 3.7v (we used 500 mAh)
- Silicone Cover wire
- USB micro cable
