Heart-rate hoodie update: Don’t get your hopes up.

Check out that mess on the breadboard. Look at all that delicious electrical tape. Yeah, that’s the stuff. While my circuit is completely correct, the IR emitter/detector diodes are finnicky. Without adhering to very specific and difficult-to-achieve circumstances, they won’t react to each other. It’s quite possible I’ll need to pick a different trigger circuit — got suggestions? Let’s hear ’em.


But, on the lighter side of things, the hoodie’s been made and the servos have been sewn in. Will let you know how the mechanical aspects go later this week. The project is due to be completed by Monday the 9th.
