Brian Kaminski of Advancer Technologies describes in a his new instructable post how to utilize their EMG Sensor Kit to build a USB Biofeedback Game Controller. You can use it to play any computer game (that uses keyboard inputs) using your muscles as the controller!
The EMG Sensor is integrated with the Arduino UNO allowing four muscles to act independently or in combination with each other to control over four buttons. In his demonstration, six button setup has been selected with the left forearm controlling the B button (RUN/ATTACK), the right forearm controlling the A button (JUMP), the left bicep controlling the LEFT button, the right bicep controlling the RIGHT button, and combinations for UP and DOWN.

To build the project you need the following:
1 x Arduino Uno R2 (needs the atmega8u2 USB chip which is only available on newer Arduino MCUs)
1 x Arduino Project Enclosure
1 x USB cable for your Arduino
4 x Advancer Technologies Platinum Muscle Sensor
1 x Advancer Technologies Muscle Sensor Power Supply (without headers)
1 x 12V Power Supply (Wall wart)
4 sets of EMG Cables and Electrodes
Instructions and code for the Arduino and your computer (Processing code) is provided here.
