Augmented reality (AR) is still a long way from widespread adoption, but Facebook is already researching novel ways to control it. Its solution is a wrist-type wearable EMG, which can convert the motor nerve signals that move your hand to digital commands. As a result, this AR controller can measure finger movements as small as 1mm and simplifies everything from the on-screen keyboard to shooting games. In addition, it also applies to those who have lost limbs, opening up roads for the disabled. As a development device, there is currently no commercialization plan.

“Imagine being able to teleport anywhere in the world to have shared experiences with the people who matter most in your life — no matter where they happen to be,”
says Andrew Bosworth, who leads FRL.
