About this project

What?

The "Pulse Of The City" is an interactive art installation that was in SF, CA and Boston, MA.

Here is the scenario:

  • We measure the heart beat of a passer-by
  • We notify him with LEDs strips
  • The measured heart beat value controls the playback speed of pseudo-randomly selected music tracks
  • These data are stored and sent every day

How?

Technically, it consists of the following:

  • An arduino reads the heart beat sensor and controls LEDs
  • A raspberry pi plays music and send data with a 3G module
  • All of it is solar powered, and the energy is stored in batteries
