    Works as designed. The beauty of this product is not what it does (or the limits of existing SW in the Beta Market) but what it is capable of doing!!! I recommend it. Get the SDK, task your imagination and get to coding!!

    The product did not work at all. After following all the directions carefully, the item would be very unreliable in recognizing my gestures. In addition, the sync process that occurs each time the Bluetooth is activated is very unreliable. As a college professor, I do not recommend this device if you rely on it solely for presentations. A hand presenter remote is much more reliable. I returned this item for a refund after wasting hours trying to get it to work,

    First of all, many congrats to the team that took the initiative and risk in putting this together. It is innovation at its best – out of the box thinking that will catch on (in probably a different form) in a huge way. Imagine having a ‘wearable tech’ item that, with a small gesture, you can control all kinds of other tech. That is where this is heading and this current offering from Thalmic is the first step. You have probably read other reviews and know what this piece of kit does, so I won’t reiterate here, but I will say that it does do what it says it will and for us ‘tech-heads’ out there, it is a very fun and functional device. I recently had a question about modifying the gesture input to do something different with powerpoint, and within a few days received a personal email from Mark, at tech support, addressing my specific question and including new ‘code’ that reprogrammed the armband to do what I wanted it to do. Excellent customer support.The bigger question I think, is where is this headed? Once Thalmic has brought out versions 2 or 3, I can imagine another company (M$ / APL?) buying up these patents and applying their marketing spin (imagine combining this product with a smartwatch) to make this a mainline technology. I am glad to be there at the start 🙂
