Open-source, Arduino-based wearable biometric sensor EmotiBit meets Kickstarter goal

A new biometric, wearable sensor module based on Arduino is now available on Kickstarter. Dubbed EmotiBit, the open-source device can detect emotional, physiological, and movement data via more than 16 biometric signals.

“Wear in any orientation, anywhere on the body, and start measuring biometric signals! Built-in slots make it easy to wear EmotiBit any way you want,” reads the Kickstarter page. Since the data is 100 percent user-owned, it can be recorded directly to the built-in SD card, and viewed through a cross-platform visualizer available for Mac, PC, and Linux, and built on the OpenFrameworks creative-coding toolkit.

EmotiBit open source wearable biometric sensor

A new open source Arduino driven wearable biometric sensor has been created by the develop and team at EmotiBit, offering an easy-to-use sensor capturing high-quality emotional, physiological and movement data that is 100% user owned. Thanks to its open source design and Arduino compatibility data from the sensor can be streamed wirelessly to any platform, enabling artists and makers to unlock new perspectives on biometric signals.

The data is 100% user-owned and can be directly recorded to the built-in SD card, empowering anyone to explore their own health and wellness without reservations about where that data might end up.EmotiBit is able to detect 16+ biometric signals that are constantly traveling throughout our bodies, reflecting our moment by moment physiological and emotional changes.
