A wearable device to give
your projects a live heartbeat.
BY YURY GITMAN AND JOEL MURPHY
Poets and artists have always sought to bare their hearts to the
world, and today heartbeat monitoring is essential to physicians,
athletes, and many others. The beating of our hearts carries
evocative power, symbolic meaning, musicality, and practical
utility, so it’s not surprising that many DIYers try to incorporate
it into their projects.
Colleagues at Parsons The New School for Design, Yury Gitman is a toy inventor and product designer who teaches Physical
Computing and Toy Design, and Joel Murphy is an artist and engineer who teaches Physical Computing and Cybernetics.
