Experimental, Hands-Free Technology from Microsoft

Microsoft is developing technology that will allow people to do things like play Guitar Hero and other tasks by using their muscles – not their hands.

How can this be, you ask? Well, the tech works by reading your body’s electrical activity (the signals sent from your brain to your limbs) and intercepting the data, replicating the action in a program.

This tech can potentially be used for people with disabilities. It can also be used for people who are just lazy ba******.

The above clip shows how it works, and also shows how Activision and Harmonix might be able to get around the cost and inconvenience of bulky plastic instruments by pitching future band games to the air guitar crowd.
