Earlier today, Thalmic Labs announced it successfully raised over $150 million CAD to expand its operations and launch a new product.
The company first unveiled the Myo armband several years ago and CEO and co-founder Stephen Lake promised it will “have new products in the pipeline and are excited to share more soon.”
While there are no details as to what the “human computer interaction” Waterloo-based company will unveil, Thalmic has gone live with a sign-up page for those interested in keeping up-to-date on the company’s products.
“At Thalmic Labs, we’re making revolutionary wearable technologies that will fundamentally change the way we interact with computers,” says the email registration page. “We’re developing new computer interfaces to seamlessly blend the real and digital worlds.”
Thalmic’s Myo armband uses the kinetic energy and motion stored in your arm to move and execute applications on Bluetooth connected devices, be it a tablet, smartphone, computer, camera or even the Oculus Rift VR headset.
