What gestures does the Myo armband recognize?

The Myo armband recognizes 5 pre-set gestures out of the box. They are:

 

Wave Left

 

 

 

Wave Right

 

 

 

Double Tap

 

 

 

Fist

 

 

 

Fingers Spread

 

 

 

Developers can combine these pre-set gestures with arm motions (data from the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to create new gestures. This gives the potential for hundreds of different gestures. They also have access to raw EMG data from the Myo that can allow them to create their own custom gestures.

Additionally, using the custom calibration profile tool in the Armband Manager of Myo Connect will allow you to record your own motions that map to the 4 EMG-based gestures.
