- 1 Overview
- 2 Biosensor Array Developer
We are building an array of biosensors as part of our program to:
- familiarize people with collecting data
- provide useful health related information displayed in a digestible manner to the device wearer
- provide larger data samples to medical professionals should the user choose to share what they have collected
- promote healthy living and health awareness
- encourage hobby electronics by using open sourced hardware
Our initial audience for this device kit will be secondary schools and colleges. It will be marketed as an educational and personal experimental tool. The array will collect data from various sensors attached to the test subject's body and then make that data available to the experimenter. The project will use as many common consumer parts as possible.
A $900 Paypal budget will be provided by element14. The terms of the Challenge require that it use a microcontroller and a "portable power source" bought from element14.

Product Line Overview
General Student Kit
for the kids this is the primary kit we are developing for the GGHC.
This kit includes wired sensors and a mother microcontroller enough to get students involved in data logging.
- Mother Arduino
- Sensor: Body Temperature
- Sensor: Oxygen Saturation
- Sensor: Heartrate
- Sensor: Galvanic Skin Response
- Sensor: Respiratory Volume/Frequency
- Sensor: Carbon Dioxide Output
- Body Harness
Wireless Student Kit
- Same as General Student Kit but the sensors are wireless via xbee shields. Just in case wires aren't your thing.
for the Mad Scientists, Cyclists, Marathoners, and Runners.
These sensors and devices are too hardcore to be included in the basic package but we wanted to provide them should you need to take over the world. Most have another ardunio onboard.
This page is focused on developers, unlike the current page you are viewing which is focused on end users. Developer gets into all the nitty gritty details of the direction, design, and fabrication of the project.
