After playing with my stretch sensor and thinking a bit more about breathing + computing, I began looking for ways my computer could notify me when my breathing was becoming shallow, or stopping. I first changed the graph to a simple color changing screen – it shifts from purple (inhale) to magenta (exhale). I tried thinking . . . → Read More: Cyborg Inversion
This week I wanted to quantify my breathing using a stretch sensor + Arduino.
I set up the sensor using some alligator clips, stringing the conductive elastic around my ribcage to get an analog read correlating to lung expansion. Once I had consistent serial reads, I used Processing to graph my breath, and watched contentedly as my . . . → Read More: The Obvious Unnoticed
