Myo for Max

I developed a new external for Cycling’74 Max to connect with the Myo armband.

The object allows for streaming all raw data from the Myo armband:

  • Accelerometer (3D)
  • Gyroscopes (3D)
  • Orientation (Quaternions)
  • Electromyograms EMGs (8D)

Compatibility: Mac OS X 10.8+, Max 6.1+, 64-bit only!

It is based on the Myo c++ API by Thalmic Labs. This object should be compiled with Max SDK version 6 or greater.
