Some folks in Belfast have created an interactive entertainment platform called Sensum, and it looks really cool ! "Sensum integrates emotional response reporting into any media and is universally compatible with a wide range of platforms and devices." Wow. Catch up on all the biofeedback-in-entertainment news on their tumbler. The company behind Sensum is called Filmtrip, and they are not new to this kind of thing. Here's a project of theirs called Biosuite, and a great article in the New Scientist.
They backed our Kickstarter last year (You Rock!) and just made a video to demo Pulse Sensor sending data wirelessly over XBee, a moble app, controlling Xbox Kinect, and fading theatrical lighting over DMX512. Super Duper Cool.
Homage to The Hitchhiker's Guide, via Pulse Sensor and Arduino:
The Pulse Sensor has been getting out and about in the world.
Two weeks ago we were interviewed for an MTV Brazil show called Mod. It will air in the fall in Brazil, or be available on their website shortly after.
We were also invited to speak and demo the sensor at the NY MeetUp for Quantified Self. This is a very interesting organization that you should know about if you don't already. http://quantifiedself.com/ is the mothership site. QS has a unique distinction of being a $600 Kickstarter rewards backer. You'll see their name immortalized in the Pulse Sensor code.
