Mirror Land and the Last Millimeter


Microsoft EMG Interface Patent

Patent application number: 20090326406

Well that was pretty quick. This went across the radar just this morning. See yesterday’s post Mirror Land and the Last Foot.

“Microsoft’s connecting EMG sensors to arm muscles and then detecting finger gestures based on the muscle movement picked up by those sensors” REF: Engadget

Looks like one part of the “Last Millimeter” is already patented. In a millmeter map we pick up objects and rotate them in mirror land. At least they don’t use drills with an EMG interface. My no fly threshold is any interface device requiring trepanning! It is interesting to see the biological UI beginning to stick its nose in the tent.


Technology has its limits
