A Visual, Physical Representation Of Your Body’s Data Using Nike+ [Video]
This piece of tech offers a simulation of its user's cardiovascular function during exercise.
Sebastian Buys, a recent graduate of the ITP (Interactive Telecommunications Program) at Tisch School of the Arts, NYU, created this project for his Thesis Week presentation. This interactive object (a Data companion) uses a person’s data, taken from the heart rate tracking application Nike+, to provide a simulation of their cardiovascular function during exercise. The technology enables a user to obtain biofeedback and view their body’s response to a workout. They can see their heart rate increasing, their muscles contracting and an increased depth and rate of breathing.
