Beats Exposed is an interactive experience in which an aerial performer uses a wearable technology that houses a Polar pulse sensor and a Moteino wireless transceiver. The transceiver sends the pulse signal to a second transceiver, which is attached by USB to a computer and sends the signal to the serial port. The serial transmission is then brought into a computer graphics application. The graphics are shown on a projector as they respond in real time to the pulse transmission. The graphics application also plays an audio sample of a heartbeat with each pulse. This is livestreamed to a website where audience members listen to the pulse with their smartphones and noise cancelling headphones.
