These slides use ideas from my (Jeff Funk) class to develop a business model for MYO’s new form of computer interface. This wrist band-based device uses EMG signals from a person’s forearm to control mobile phones, MP3 players, and other electronic devices. This enables users to interact with electronic devices in ways that can’t be done with existing gesture (e.g., Kinect, LEAP)-based devices or touch screens. Snow boarders can control their MP3 players on the slopes while gamers can do new tricks.

    • MT4002 – Technology Management Strategy Final Presentation 5.11.2013 Aleksi Tiira Jari Kumpulainen Petri Salama Riku Lindholm Tommi Tuulenmäki MYO: A New Form of Computer Interface that uses EMG signals from the forearm
    • Agenda 1. Value Proposition 2. Customer Selection 3. Value Capture 4. Scope of Activities 5. Strategic Control
    • Value Proposition
    • Value Proposition Value Proposition Next generation gesture control with no boundaries – Camera-free – High connectivity and countless industries – Fast and accurate response – Anywhere at any time Customer Selection Value Capture Scope of Activities Strategic Control
    • Value Proposition Camera-free MYO measures gestures with sensors Customer Selection Value Capture – No cameras, no wires, no buttons Scope of Activities – Range of movement like never before Strategic Control – From subtle everyday gestures to application specific actions Current competition – LEAP, Kinect – Touchscreen – Mechanical input (mouse, keyboard)
    • Value Proposition Fast and Accurate Response Gestures recognized before movement Customer Selection Value Capture – Muscle activity Scope of Activities – 9-axis inertial measurement unit (MEMS) Strategic Control
    • Value Proposition High connectivity Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy – Growing standard that can be utilized by many common devices in many industries • Smartphones, Computers, Smart clocks and glasses… • Drone control (military) • Healthcare • Etc. Versatile SDK allows developers to create MYO applications for any device which requires control and has Bluetooth Customer Selection Value Capture Scope of Activities Strategic Control
    • Value Proposition Strategy Canvas Customer Selection Value Capture High Offerings Scope of Activities Strategic Control MYO Camera based motion control (LEAP) Low Touchscreen Mechanical Input (keyboard, mouse…)
    • Customer Selection
    • Value Proposition Segments 1. End Users The ones that use MYO Customer Selection 2. App Developers Provide the apps for MYO Value Capture Scope of Activities Strategic Control Military MYO Consumer electronics Profession Tools
    • Value Proposition Needs of the Segments End Users 1 Mobility 2 Connectivity 3 Applications App Developers 1 Easy-to-use SDK 2 Unique platform 3 Users Customer Selection Value Capture Scope of Activities Strategic Control Value for the Segments End Users 1 No wires or external sensors 2 Bluetooth 4.0 3 App library (under development) App Developers 1 Easy-to-use SDK (they have one) 2 No similar alternative 3 User base (under development)
