VIDEO: Microsoft reveals muscle computer controls

Microsoft has revealed a new way of controlling computers that could, in the future, see us carrying out commands with our muscles.

Using "electromyography", or EMG, the patented tech records the electrical activity of muscles and translate those signals into instruction sets which would control a computer.

This could mean using your head, chest, arms and legs for gaming applications (the video above demos a futuristic way of playing Guitar Hero) of particular interest to consumers.

Hit play on the video to see it officially explained and we'll keep you posted with developments.
