Node for using the Myo device in VVVV, built upon the MyoSharp wrapper by Nick Cosentino and Tayfun Uzun.


The Myo node exposes most of the functionality MyoSharp offers. This includes

  • Receiving gesture data from Myo (rest, fist, wave-in, wave-out, spreaded fingers, double-tap)
  • Receiving raw EMG data from Myos sensors
  • Receiving gyro and accelerometer-data from Myo
  • Sending vibration signals to Myo (short, medium, long)
  • Unlocking Myo for enabling gestures
    • timed: unlock for 2 seconds (value is fixed by Myo SDK and cannot be changed)
    • hold: unlock until it Myo is locked again manually
  • Request and recieve signal strength (RSSI)

Also see the node's help file.


For now this plugin can only use one Myo at a time (and there is no way of setting which Myo it is). I don't have a second Myo to improve and test on this issue so pull requests are welcome ;)
