    Playing Guitar Hero with your hands : muCIs project from Microsoft

    Muscle-Computer Interfaces (muCIs) from Microsoft Research Redmond

    As computing and displays begin to integrate more seamlessly into our environment and are used in situations where the user is not always focused on the computing task, it is important to consider mechanisms for acquiring human input that may not necessarily require direct manipulation of a physical implement.
    We explore the feasibility of muscle-computer input: an interaction methodology that directly senses and decodes human muscular activity rather than relying on physical device actuation or user actions that are externally visible or audible.
