Heartbeat Wall

The Heartbeat Wall in-situ at the museum.

Peaks, valleys and flatlines. Visualizing the heart can be a delightful experience …

This arduino-driven experience allows up to three visitors to visualize their heartbeat on a Pixel flex canvas by placing their hands on a custom sensor placed on a pedestal.

While the interaction concept for the experience is very simple, there is an instantaneous pay off as visitor can immediately see their heart pulse on the canvas and compare them with other visitors.

Visualizing your heartbeat on a grand scale.
