The smart phone with the pebble app is situated on the stand. The app is started.
Measurement for blood pressure, ECG and H-FABP density start when wrists are situated over sensors. Userâ€™s part in measurement taking is minimized and so is the fear of doing something wrong.
Begin My Data pebble
Guiding with an explanatory video when wrists are not placed properly over the sensors
All measurements are within accepted range
Green is associated with healing

inspiration & scene
Aesthetics of ice, water and scientific settlement in antartica
Sea organ in Crotia creates sound by the waves crashing to the stairs
Records made in Antartica by Phillip Samartzis
Use of light
Creating a performance by the exploration of sounds generated by the interaction of ice, water and air
Ways to generate sound
Playing the instrument
Prototype with ice
Exploring ways to create sounds
Prototypes for testing airways
fipple corrugated tube plastic tube ice
Sound changes as ice melts because there is increased space for air
Water inside the corrugation creates a slide flute effect
As the water pushes the air inside the tubes, a sound is generated in the fipple
The instrument is activated by the interaction of ice with water and air.
