breathing sequence slow

I’ve managed to program the first representation of breathing-time. This is a sequence of the way the drop changes when I’m actually breathing while wearing the stretch sensor. The dept of the breath determines the diameter and alpha value of the ‘drop’. The breath rate determines the blurring and horizontal position of the drop. Slow […]

OOP Processing

For my breathing_time project I’m currently developing a script that’ll represent breathing-time. It’s my first attempt at object oriented programming (OOP) in Processing and it went rather smoothly. The pictures are the first results using static data. Now I’m working on the ‘drops’ being affected by the data from the breath belt. Size, blurring and […]

discovering breath

I’ve upgraded my code for the stretch sensor graph in Processing. The sensor outputs numbers. When I breath in or out the number gets lower. Detecting breathing activity isn’t as easy as looking for a numbers below 200 for example. Because over the time of wearing the sensor the whole range of numbers starts to […]

stretch sensor visualisation

I’ve upgraded the first circuit with the potentiometers and the results look promising. I used the Processing sketch that comes with the Arduino to make a graphic of my breathing activity. I’ve tagged the different regions in the graph so it’s easy to follow the movement of the breath. Btw the circuit is constructed in […]

belt for measuring breath

My first attempt at building a breath measuring belt using the Merlin stretch sensor. I used this tutorial: When I breath in and out you don’t see much changes in values. Not more then 20 which is kind of hard to work with. See the full gallery on Posterous
