What is it? It’s a ges­ture-con­trolled arm­band for Macs and iOS de­vices, us­ing mus­cle sen­sors to en­able the wearer to con­trol de­vices with a flick of the wrist or the clench of a fist. When’s it due? You can pre-or­der one now. Why are we ex­cited? It can be used with apps such as Key­note, so pre­sen­ta­tions can be con­trolled on your Mac by wav­ing left/right to move be­tween slides and mak­ing a fist to an­no­tate. On an iPhone you can con­trol mu­sic mid-jog by per­form­ing the ges­tures in the air.
