Heart Spark jewelry beats to your heart

The folks at SenseBridge, a research group that meets at the NoiseBridge hackerspace, just released this Heart Spark necklace pendant. It’s got a receiver for a Polar heart rate monitor built into it, and has space to add a real-time clock and extra storage if you want to turn it into a heart-rate monitor. The source code for the project is already available, and schematics and board layouts are promised soon.

This looks like it would be fun both as-it, and as a building block for more advanced body monitoring designs. Anyone want to make a recreation of Takehito Etani’s Pimp My Heart?

    It’s a cool project, similiar to http://geekphysical.blogspot.com/2008/11/biometric-jewelry.html. However, the video is definitely amazing, all electronic show off videos shall henceforth be in the form of music videos, brilliant. :) Nice form for the circuit board though, and good idea to put the polar heart rate monitor on the back, it saves a lot of space and makes for a good aesthetic.

    Now that’s creativity! I wonder where I could get one of these locally.. I’m thinking it’d be a great gift for my techie sister! She lives for this kind of stuff. Personally, I think Antique Jewelry is the best, but not everyone does.

    Very unique idea. Technology has changed the whole world in many ways…. On seeing this pendant it is proved that technology has placed its foot on the jewellery designs as well. This really looks amazing. Techie people will definitely like it.
