One of our prime passions is to motivate the next great minds and ideas by posting informative step-by-step tutorials. To celebrate the launch of our fourth-generation muscle sensor, the MyoWare, we've revisited our most popular tutorial and simplified it down to just four major components!
This Instructable will teach you to build a bionic glove using our fourth-generation muscle sensor, the MyoWare. Simply flex your forearm muscle and hear the repulsor charge up, then relax your forearm to fire (lighting up the LEDs on your palm and playing explosion sound effects). As an added flair for realism, when you turn on the system, JARVIS's voice takes you through the boot up and calibration sequence.
I AM IRON MAN!
Be sure to check out our Kickstarter campaign (running until June 6th) to pick up a kit that includes the four major components for this tutorial. As part of the campaign, we are donating one of our sensors for every five backers to Limbitless Solutions, a non-profit that builds and donates 3D-printed myoelectric prosthetic arms to children in need around the world.

The NeoPixel/LilypadMP3/MyoWare setup can be directly attached to any glove without making the painted foam armor as shown in the video. This tutorial will briefly go over how to make the foam armor at the end if you choose to go down that advanced route. However, the steps won't be as in depth as the rest. There is a wealth of tutorials on how to make EPA foam Iron Man armor on the internet (YouTube, TheRPF.com).
