Introduction: Cardboard Box Pulse Monitor
This is a simple step by step process of creating a nice pulse monitor by reusing cardboard boxes that you would otherwise throwaway. I reused an ice cream box to make this.
This is a demonstration on how the reusable items can be put to better use and reduce the trash around us indirectly helping the environment.

Step 1: Make Power\Data Slots on the Box
Create a circuitry for pulse monitor using Arduino. You can refer to a wonderful Instructable by callmeappytechie @ https://www.instructables.com/id/Pulse-Sensor-With...
Measure the sizes of the power & data slots for the Arduino and cut holes approximately on the lower end of he box at a corner as shown in the picture.
Step 2: Fitting the Arduino
Use a double sided tape and fit the Arduino board in the corner of the box where we have made holes for the power \ data slots.
Step 3: Placing the Pulse Sensor
Make a small slits on the lid of the cardboard and pull the pulse sensor and led wires through it and attach them using the double-sided tape as shown.
Step 4: Test the Circuit
Before sealing the box, make sure the device is tested and the placement of the pulse sensor is adjusted for ease of use for the user.
We have a be nice policy.
