Make your own Heart Rate Monitor #Arduino


From instructables user paulindallas:

Beep..beep… Are you still alive?

Okay, let’s get to the heart of the matter. This is not an ordinary, run of the mill, Heart Rate Monitor. This is a Geeky, ordinary, run of the mill, Heart Rate monitor. It not only shows an 8×8 dot matrix LED display of a heart that pulses to your heart rate, but it tells you the beats per minute in the binary numbering system.
