Thalmic Labs is pioneering new ways of interacting with digital devices. With a mission to merge people and technology, the company is revolutionizing how we will interact with technology in the future. Its first product, the Myo™ armband, measures electrical activity in muscles to wirelessly control computers, phones and other digital technologies.
Thalmic Labs sat in the same office space previously occupied by Vidyard and BufferBox at UW Velocity (so the karma was strong on this one going in). Karam was introduced to them in early 2013 by Mike Litt, but we couldn’t get our act together quick enough to lock in an investment before their record-breaking crowdfunding campaign for the Myo armband and subsequent Series A. After watching the team continue to develop and execute at a ridiculously high level, we finally managed to make an investment in early 2016.
