HumanAPI expands our understanding of 'API' by illustrating how everything can be considered a source of useful information for sensors to capture.

Combining a fitness heart rate monitor, an Arduino board, and a specialized mobile application, developer Nikolai Onken has built a prototype for what he calls the HumanAPI. The prototype collects heart rate data, transmitting it via bluetooth to the application where it is plotted in real time. The project is similar to other emerging systems which capture and monitor biometric information effortlessly; helping expand our understanding of ‘API’ by illustrating how everything can and should be considered a source of useful information.
