Pimp My Heart

Pimp My Heart. In this project, my collaborator Takehito Etani and I create a music playback system for pimped out cars that responds to the drivers real-time heart rate, synchronizing the low-end bass rhythms of the music to match the frequency of the heart rate.

This piece consisted of a modified heart sensor and custom software for beat-matching music to the heart rate.
