These most definitely are the droids you’re looking for

Aside from the stylish robes and glow-in-the-dark weaponry, the best thing about being a Jedi is controlling things with a flick of your wrist.

And now, thanks to the MYO gesture control armband, you can do just that. By measuring the electrical activity in your muscles, the MYO translates your arm, hand and finger movements into interactive commands to control your computer, smartphone and more.

So, essentially, you can scroll a YouTube video forward with a clap of your hands, turn up the volume on your stereo with a snap of your fingers and conduct a Powerpoint presentation by just waving.

The MYO also has its uses in gaming – you can play a first-person shooter with your hand as your pistol – while soldiers can use it to control drones.

It’s available for pre-order now, priced £100. A much sounder, and ultimately more useful, investment than a cheap plastic lightsaber.
