Light Beat from Alex Beim on Vimeo.
How it Works:
Place your index finger on the sensor and see the light react to your heart beat.
Intellijel created the Heart Rate monitor sensor. No computers everything was running from an Arduino wirelessly connected to the Tangible Light Pixels inside the inflatables

1. Light Beat by Tangible interaction

By placing their hand on a sensor, the users heartbeat in used to create the beat of the light on a large inflatable balloon. The pulsing light is a representation of a persons heartbeat and displays what is otherwise a innately personal aspect of an individual From the website, “Intellijel created the Heart Rate monitor sensor. No computers everything was running from an Arduino wirelessly connected to the Tangible Light Pixels inside the inflatables.”

This Project really interested in that is uses the heart rate to control the light. I was thinking we could incorporate this type of idea into our project, be it controlling light sound or the imagery.

The imagery could pulsate, or the sound of the heart beat could create the atmosphere, there are many possibilities.
