Use the PPG sensor on EmotiBit to detect your heartbeats and display them on an Adafruit CharliePlex FeatherWing!
How It Works
The EmotiBit firmware library communicates with the onboard PPG sensor (MAX30101) via I2C to get PPG data. The sensor has 3 different wavelengths that can easily be accessed by tweaking the stock example to provide different cardiovascular information. Code snippet below:
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.
