This boombox plays drum beats from YOUR heartbeats. There are three sensors which measure up to three people’s heartbeats. The boombox plays a different drum sound per sensor which speeds up or down depending on the user’s heartbeat. With three users, It’s a Heartbeat Drum Circle!

    HI. I love your project. I also see a significant commercial opportunity for this kind of processing. Specifically, vehicular aesthetics.

    I challenge you to wrap this heartbeat sensor up into a package that listens to the music playing in your car radio and ensures blinkers’ and wipers’ rhythms match up perfectly with it.

    It may sound silly, but it will sell because automakers are finally becoming very concerned with overall ownership / driving experience. And you know synchronized beats in-car would make MANY people smile.

    Kudos!
