May 12 Demo of swim belt breath sensor. The sensor is connected to the swim belt and detecting depth of breaths. The visualization program shows breathing patterns as colors and graphs. The breathing sensor will be integrated in the VR experience soon.

 

 

May 5 New progress on non-invasive sensing of breathing patterns. Working now on combining with easy set up (swim belt) and VR program: 

 

May 3 Tests of breath biofeedback. The interaction with a ‘crab’ is programmed using the Unity game development platform:  

April 26 Tests for breath sensor interaction in ‘Miami Beach.’ Soap bubbles are expanding with deeper breaths. For final program water levels will be in-sync with breath, too:
