Bluetooth heart rate monitor using OF


I wanted to create a piece that changs colour and effects of an image based on your heart rate and was wondering if anyone has used a bluetooth heart rate monitor to do this? I’ve found a method of how to build your own Heart Rate Bluetooth Arduino but it looks quite clunky so was wondering whether anyone else has dev’d on one using OF.

Thanks in advance,

Hi @Mala have you found any solution to this?

@zach I am seeing this reply just now. I bypassed the HR monitor thing for now and I used other sensors. But for the future I think I will have to find out how to read data sent via bluetooth, despite the device connected. The last link you sent sounds interesting I will dig into it a bit more!
