During the last couple of days we tried different kind of sensors on ourselves. Interesting sensors for us might be those measuring ECG, HRV, GSR, pulse or movement. We are right now in an exploring phase, where we test the sensors possibilities related to our project. The main concern is how and with which sensors are we able to mirror the health-status of a user? Do we work with one sensor in particular or with a combination of sensors? These are questions we now embark.
On the following pictures a ECG sensor is pictured. The heartbeat project is from one of our colleagues – here the heartbeat is visualized via an android application.
