Sponsoring an Open Source Heart-rate Sensor that Rocks

July 22, 2011

This is a first for us. At our Bay Area QS Show&Tell meetup this week (slides available here), we had so many wonderful folks donate and buy QS t-shirts that we decided to use the money to fund an exciting project on Kickstarter.

It’s an open hardware project called Pulse Sensor, by Yury Gitman and Joel Murphy. The project tagline is “heart rate beats per minute for Arduino, lickety split.” We happily gave them $600 towards their goal of $3,000, which they have already exceeded. Their Kickstarter page is here, and here’s their awesome video:
