Heart Bot

Intel and sms audio have collaborated with sid lee to create the ‘heart bot’, an experimental drawing machine powered by the cardiac rate of the audience. The artwork has been generated at the new museum in New York City, during the launch of the two campanies’ joint ‘biosport’ headphones. The devices, previously featured bydesignboom, feature small biometric sensors, which enable you to track your pulse during exercise.

The installation collects heart beat data from people during a fixed time, at a specific location and translates it into generative art. The interactive digital and physical work demonstrates how each individual experiences a unique moment. The final piece created by the ‘Heart Bot’ will be donated to feeding america, the country’s leading domestic relief charity. Tool of North America – most notably aramique, and odd division also helped create the celebratory design.
