Using groundbreaking technology, MYO is able to measure electrical activity in your muscles instantly.
The result is a seamless way to interact with computers, and a truly magical sense of control.
The MYO senses gestures and movements in two ways: 1) muscle activity, and 2) motion sensing. When sensing the muscle movements of the user, the device can detect changes in hand gesture right down to each individual finger. When tracking the positioning in space of the arm and hand, the device can detect subtle movements all directions.
Bluetooth v4.0 is described by the Bluetooth SIG as a versatile combination of three different Bluetooth protocols--the classic Bluetooth we know and love, the low-energy Bluetooth, and the high-speed Bluetooth. The three faces of Bluetooth v4.0 can be implemented individually or in combination with each other.
One of the defining characteristics of Bluetooth--especially compared with Wi-Fi--is the short range. Standard Bluetooth devices are generally restricted to about a 30 foot range in order to maintain the wireless connection. With Bluetooth v4.0, it's possible to optimize the range of Bluetooth devices up to 200 feet or more.

I am looking at the webpage right now, but so far, it seems like a very cool device.
Finally a really smart thing that is not about surveillance!
But what is the interface with the computer when for example controlling an AR-Drone. I can not find any info about that on the webpage.
Is the MYO programmable itself, or does it link with a computer that receives the signals and then send them in turn to the AR-Drone? I would imagine that something needs to be in between as an interpreter.
If not, and it is just possible to hook MYO straight up to anything,
