I have heard about the government and companies doing this kind of thing.  Does anyone know how or have an  idea of how, to detect a heart beat in a room or even multiple heart beats? Thanks in advance.

Serious Notice guys n gals concerning me.......

Hey, just wanted to let you all know (so, maybe I put this in the wrong forum) that I am up this early in the morning ( 6:30 am ) because I have to go to the hospital for a complete cardiac / pulmonary workup and battery of tests. Yeah, getting older stinks, especially if you let you physically self atrophy. Anyway, just wanted you all to know, in case you don't see me for a few days or longer (the tests only last about 4 hours or so, but they could potentially bring on cardiac arrest, or trigger a severe asthma attack, depending on the kind of shape I am in ( it is kind of a pregnant pear shape actually ). See you all when I am back from the hospital....Addendum: I have a lowered amount of blood flow to my heart. What this means is that I am a borderline heart attack candidate if it gets any worse. Cholesterol was a little high, triglycerides way high. I will find out details on Friday I suppose when we discuss options...Addendum 2: The pulmonary tests ( 05/21/2008 ) were horrible, but there doesn't seem to be anything overly wrong that is obvious to the tech, with my lungs.....will have to wait for the doc's report thoughAddendum 3: Well, I am afraid things have progressed to the next step... I have to have a heart cauterization to see what may be blocking the lower artery, and how bad the blockage is. If not too bad, they will simply do a quick angioplasty and open it up, but if bad, I will then be scheduled for a bypass. *sigh* as we age the fun just never ends, eh ? Addendum 4: It will not be THIS coming week, but most likely next week, they will do the double bypass. Because of the location of the blockage at a major branch which would end up cutting off flow to the other artery, they have decided I best have the bypass done. PS: there was hardly ANY pain in the cath procedure.....I am going to give the person that told me that a hard time next time I see them :-) But I have experienced broken bones already, so I know the next step is not going go be a picnic. Addendum 5:I may be able to get the bypass done as early as Monday the 9th Yay ! Addendum 6:I am now into my second week of recovery, and things are progressing so well, my wife is afraid I will want to go back to work early and she will be alone again.

A Bit of Circuitry Advice!

Hey all! Me again :D.  So I was messing around with my electronics and decided to make a pulse sensor, but I ran into a couple of problems along the way! My project is based off of this, http://makezine.com/projects/ir-pulse-sensor/, but I didn't have a LM324, so I was trying a workaround.  So grabbing my infrared light detector, and new multimeter, hooked my IR sensor up between 5V and and A0 and a 10k resistor from A0 to GND, just like with a light sensor, but obviously, it wasn't sensitive enough, so I kicked it up notch. Since I didn't have the specific amplifier that MAKE used I decided to use what I had, which was a LM358. After visiting the datasheet and finding a schematic, I came up with this circuit (image below). Now it's not sensitive enough yet to measure pulses. The circuit from MAKE makes use of the the 2 of 4 internal op amps in the LM324, and I thought I could make the same circuit on my LM358, since it had two op amps inside of it. So basically, replacing the LM324 int the circuit with a LM358.  The image below is a circuit I made up using just one of the LM358's op amps. Tonight I will try to use both just like in the MAKE circuit.  If you guys could just give me a few pointers and set me on the right track that would be great, or if I even need two amplifiers! Why can't I just make the first one more powerful?  And the capacitor between the - and the output varies. I'm still trying out different caps. The 0.1uf is too much, so I'm experimenting.  Thanks!

LEDs that get brighter when they're closer.

Ohkay, so I have an idea for a cute gift. The idea is to make two heart pendants that get brighter depending on how close they are to each-other. The problem is, I have no idea how to go about the dimming aspect. I've never even held a soldering gun, let alone used one. But I'd be willing to pick it up for this if I had a good tutorial/instructable to go off of. Even a general idea of what to look into would be great. I've seen similar things like the WiFi detector t-shirt at ThinkGeek, but again I'm a n00b when it comes to this stuff, so I don't know how useful that is when applied to something like this. Any help would be much appreciated, this is most definitely a burning question that's been bothering me.

Sound wave heart beat detection

I love to graph things. Everything from outside temperature to server room temperature to the number of users on the network to my weight.I just read an article in Make magazine about DIY ECGs, and it got me thinking.. i want to graph more things about my body :)Would a microphone embedded in the bed be able to pick up the heart beats and calculate the BPM? This way I could graph development in resting heart rate over time. The microphone would pick up lots of noise from the person moving around etc.. but that doesn't mather. It only needs to get a few clean heart beats in order to calculate the bpm, right?What hardware and software would be suitable to create something like this?Any ideas?Yeah, of course there are other more traditional ways of measuring heart beat.. but I'm to lazy to do that.. I'd rather spend some time making a fully automagickal system.

(Romantic) Post Office Art

After seeing hay_jumper's post office art and revenge of the post office art instructables, I decided to give it a whack. Just so proper respect is given where due please note that l read hay's instructables once and remembered the ideas several months later that's how awesome this idea is.I wanted to make a creative valentine's card for a special friend who happens to be very very talented at all that creative stuff that I tend to suck at. I figured the best way to impress her was to FAKE IT!I basically copied what hay did except l most importantly used a heart-shaped fence to make a specific shape and a (much) smaller stylus than his second project. The pictures should explain most of this madness. The stylus was made with two square layers of foam i cut and PLENTY of glue (in between layers as well as in/around pencil holes.Aftermath: I decided to send it anonymously and she called the middle man (who I used to add further anonymity as well as shipping time) and told her how awesome it was and asked for my phone number. THIS SHIT WORKS, GENTLEMEN. TAKE NOTE!

How to make an LED heart

Hello, I am designing and making a prop for a music concert and would like some advice on the best way to go about it. The prop needs to be a glowing/lit heart that starts off on stage as a series of glowing rods. The artist then constructs the shape onstage and it becomes this glowing heart. I am thinking of using some sort of plastic tubing and LED lights, but Im not sure how to construct them so that they can: - start of as individual rods then fitted together in a specific shape - they need to turn on and off an be able to have the batteries replaced. - must be bright red glow - lightweight and low heat. If anyone has some good ideas or advice on how to construct it I would be really grateful. Thanks guys!

How to make a Graphical Search and still keep the keyword in the title?

When I want to search instructables related to love for example, I put "heart" in the searchbox and a lot of related instructables appear. Good. The problem starts when I want to do a graphical search to actually see the project, but when I want it sorted by "Featured", "Views" or other thing, the search engine searches for the word "heart" in the whole instructable! If it's an instructable about a laser cutter for example, just because the ible' says in a step "You can make coins, hearts, etc etc......" the search engine automatically puts it on top of the list because it's featured.... How stupid is this?!?!?! Can someone help me please? Thanks for your kind responses.

Just returned from the hospital.....

Last night at work, I started having chest pains and pressure, and so spent the night in the hospital getting it checked out.   AFAIK, it turned out not to be heart related, but they still want to run a stress/echo-C test just to be sure. At this point, we are not sure what caused the pain/pressure for 14 hours.  But it is good to know it is probably NOT my heart :-)  ADDENDUM: .the Heart Cath, prep and procedure take up much of a day's time (started at 10 am and got out of the hospital by 4:45 PM). And I was completely wiped out mentally and physically by then. All went fairly well, they found one artery about 70% clogged but not enough apparently to need a balloon or stent (shrug), so I will be "watched" for awhile. So, thankfully, no "extended" stay at the hospital this time around. I will be going back to work in Monday even.

Gothic & Sacred Heart Pumpkins

I carved around thirty different pumpkins for the Halloween carnival this year. While the traditional jack-o-lanterns and extreme pumpkins were popular. Two of my favorites were these departures from the more typical carvings. The Sacred Heart Boo pumpkin was inspired by a Mom tattoo that I saw recently. The Gothic Boo pumpkin was started with a small bat cookie cutter which I used to transfer the design to the pumpkin with a small mallet. I found a gothic type style that I liked and printed it out and used a awl to transfer the design to the pumpkin. Finally, the bat shape cutter was used to punch holes on the back side to throw bat light patterns on the wall when lit. These sold the day I cut them, so I did not get the chance to take night photos. Regarding technique - The carvings where made with an Xacto saw blade, small wood gouges and lino-cutters (print block cutters).

help creating a biosensor prototype

I will attempt to be as concise as possible. That said, please bare with me if things are explained as well as they need to be, I am very new to this. Determined, but still a novice. I am conducting research as part of an effort to create a wearable prototype. Essentially, I need to combine a ppg heart rate monitor with a infrared thermometer (to measure skin temperature) and to have both devices maintain bluetooth capability. Any input in regards to this would be amazing.  More specifically, I am wondering if there are any DIY ppg heart rate monitor and/or infrared thermometer starter kits? Or resources that will assist with building these elements, aside from tutorials. I ask because it is a challenge to uncover all of the nuance and intricacies with electrical engineering and design without having a sufficient background.  For instance, it is clearly possible to add a bluetooth component to a heart rate monitor, but I am unsure if the two components (ppg hrm and infrared therm) must "talk" to each other while maintaining a bluetooth connection to a website or some other device.  If this is all as "simple" as building these devices separately and adding a bluetooth component to each of them, it would be greatly appreciated if you can provide a specific link to easy sources to obtain the components. I think I can follow along the tutorials, though there are still questions there.  Salud

Instructable idea: cat stuff

Okay, so as you can see by the picture, some company has made these brainwave controlled cat ears. Needless to say, they are extremely amusing to see. My idea was to try and add onto that idea with a cat tail. I was thinking of using something to monitor, say, heart rate, and use some sort of microcontroller to run four servos linked through a super-simple spine robot. it would need some sort of secure backplane to support the base of the robot and the servo mechanism, as well as to hold the electronics. Or I guess you could try and make it brain controlled as well, although that would be more difficult. But for heart rate, perhaps as heart rate increased, the tail would start to move and twitch more? I would try and build it, but i have no experience with microcontrollers (or programming) and not enough spare money at this moment. So I am throwing this idea out there too whoever wants to make it (and probably make money on it.) Anyways, have fun.

[Requesting help] Need to dye a lens filter

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I can take clear plastic and totally black it out I am trying to create a shaped bokeh effect in a uv filter for a more permanent setting than cut out paper (what most people do). Now I bought quite a few for different shapes or if I mess up. Last night I printed out on sticker paper a heart and placed it in the center of the filter and used Krylon fusion (spray paint for plastic) on the filter. It took quite a few coats to get it so light never shined through. When It looked good I peeled of the heart sticker and half the paint went with it. An obvious failure. What im trying now is, I took that filter and scratched it up a bit and I found some super glue and just thinly spread some across the lens (to hopefully give the paint something to grip to) let that sit over night it was too late to paint. And today I am now putting a few coats on it and i plan to actually cut the heart shape out of the filter.
