Created by data scientist Jen Lowe, One Human Heartbeat is an experiment that visualizes Lowe’s pulsating heartbeat. Using the Basis watch to track her pulse, Lowe has created a live stream of her beating heart for all of the Internet to see, and even points out how many more days she is expected to live.

Brooklyn-based Lowe has been measuring her heartbeat for over a month now and has revealed that based on the information provided, statistics show she has about 16452 days left to live. While the watch, as Lowe explains, “fails to record any heartrate” for an estimated 17.5% of the time, but it is still able to provide an account of her average heartrate per minute.
