  3. Double click the downloaded archive file to execute installer.
  4. The installer will add this control to ARC.

This will allow control of your servos and script variables with Thalmic Labs Myo. The gesture and accelerometer data are mapped to both servos and script variables. Much like how the WiiMote Control works with ARC, this is very similar. The benefit is it attaches to your arms, giving you the ability to have the robot mimic your movements.

*NOTE: This control requires the MYO drivers to be installed. If they are not installed, this behavior control may crash ARC. The only solution for this is to install the MYO drivers from their website. However, remember that this product has been discontinued by the manufacturer and their drivers may not be hosted for much longer.

This plugin supports multiple myo armbands to be connected to the PC. Each armband requires its own instance of this plugin.

Once you have installed the drivers and configured the Myo, this control will let you assign servos to movement and scripts to poses.
