Want the perfect song to match your running pace? Need a soothing track to fall asleep? Pulse is the app for you!
What it does
Pulse measures the speed of your heart rate and matches a song with the closest beats per minute from the Spotify API.
How we built it
We build out own heart rate sensor and then developed a program with Arduino that sent bluetooth data to an android application.
Challenges we ran into
Pebble, Bluetooth, and building the heart-rate sensor gave us serious issues, but we tried to power through most of the night.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We successfully implemented the Spotify API.
What we learned
When it comes to hackathons, start super simple and build up!
What's next for Pulse
We're definitely going to finish this project in our spare time.
