Heart on a Sleeve
Whilst learning to use arduino, I came across a video from MakerShed that talked about the PulseSensor. So I thought it would be great to try to test how it works and make a bracelet that could show the heartbeat on a sleeve. Despite being romantic enough to think that eternal love exists, I always found tattoos that speak of it ironic. Thus, I decided to borrow the aesthetic, but represent the real-time true emotion of a person through making the heart bit visible.
