The Project
'Paint your heart out' is a haptic paintbrush that responds to a user’s heart rate to encourage stress-free painting for artists young and old. This project was assigned to challenge our electronic prototyping skills. Using the heart rate sensor proved to be difficult as the readings often changed. However, this was still a great project to work on and I learned a lot through the coding, prototyping and testing stages. I created the device by 3D modelling and 3D printing a snap-fit holder and programmed the heart rate sensor to detect fast heart rates. The final outcome was highly conceptual but I enjoyed the process nonetheless. 
Completed in 2017 at the Korea Advanced Institue of Science and Technology
