We broadcasted 9 live streams in 5 countries during a 2-month world tour. Before we started, we had each person read, run and draw to calibrate their own unique brainwaves and heart rate.
Tech & Tools
Shot in first-person, and by using several sensors, we measured each personality’s heart rate and sweat level. The data was translated live into audiovisual effects using WebGL and Web Audio technology.
We made a custom backpack which included a 3D-printed rig for all the hardware, for example a Raspberry Pi to collect the sensor data. Camera footage was sent to a color grading box in the backpack, which we fine-tuned per location, to improve the footage quality.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
