Twitter Heartbeat Posting Device Akiduki-Pulse

Koress Project [J] released an opensource hardware “Akiduki Pulse” [J], which links your pulsebeat and twitter to let your friends and the world know your heartbeat status.


By 3 levels of your heartbeat, three different messages will be post on your twitter account.

  • 30-60: bradycardia now
  • 60-90: alive now
  • 90-140: tachycardia now


There is, eventually, a 4th state and its message but the message has not been tested, as they said.
