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.
