Code for Pulse, a realtime visualization of my heartbeat.
- Polar T31 Transmitter
- Polar Heart Rate Monitor Interface
- Arduino Uno
- One server for sending values from the Arduino, another for receiving heartrate data and displaying realtime d3 visualization*
*Ideal/future versions of this project would use an Arduino Yun or external/cloud server. Because of time constraints, I just used two laptops.
In Pulse, heart rate data is collected in real-time, then visually and publicly broadcast. Using personal interaction as an interface, Pulse questions the ability of biometric data to reveal, clarify, obscure, and intrude.

Notes and Thanks
This tutorial was useful.
Still need to amend the server.js file.
