Hind Hobeika on the Butterfleye Project: swimming goggles to measure heart rate

Hind Hobeika is a swimmer and an engineer from Beirut. She wanted to monitor her heart rate while she was swimming, so she built goggles that sense and display her heart rate in real time. It’s called the Butterfleye Project. In this great talk below, she describes how she designed and assembled the goggles, the challenges she faced, and future prospects for the project.

Hind is also the organizer of QS Beirut, and will be coming to the upcoming QS conference in September, if you want to meet her. (Filmed at the QS Europe conference in Amsterdam.)
