In this video Simon shares his idea on the use of the EMG SpikerBox module (from the LittleBits Bit Lab) that detects the electrical activity of human muscles non-invasively using simple skin surface electrodes. EMGs can be recorded from large muscles, or individual motor action potentials ( “spikes”) from smaller ones. Simon suggests using the EMG module as an exercising aid.

We have also watched the EMG video tutorial to learn more about how human muscles work and looked triceps and biceps up in the encyclopedia. Simon was excited to hear that our movements are also guided by electric impulses!
