plugin myo emg device gesture
Credits: MyoSharp, motzi, this-play




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 ;)

cznickesz: @joreg: Yeah, I´ll give it a try! Thx

~3d ago

joreg: @cznickesz: we're hoping this week. but depends on feedback. please test your project and let us know if it works.

~3d ago

cznickesz: @joreg: I should stop asking my questions so cryptic ;-) So right away: is final Beta39 hours, days or weeks away?

~3d ago

joreg: @cznickesz: the idea of an RC is exactly to make sure your projects will work with it. your last chance to report problems with b39.

~3d ago

cznickesz: So how "RC" is the "RC3"? I have to update an old project soon and I´m wondering if I should wait and directly update to Beta39

joreg: @takuma, the "one frame" issue was fixed in RC3 for beta39, see: beta39-release-candidate

Takuma: @joreg thank!! Ill try this. Are there a way to send video texture from vvvv to vl? fromimage node in vl somehow only sends 1 frame
