Now, tweet your heartbeat with Akiduki Pulse
Bangalore: Twitter has come out with a new device that allows users to post their heartbeats on the online networking site. 'Akiduki Pulse', released by Koress Project, a Japanese geek forum, is an open source hardware that allows relatives and friend to see the user's heart rhythm.

The tweets will contain basic information about the heartbeat and related evaluation. By three levels of the heartbeat, three messages will be posted on the twitter account automatically by the pulse box. Level 30-60 would be 'bradycardia now', 60-90 as 'Alive now' and 90-140 will be 'tachycardia now.' There is a fourth level, but it has not yet been tested. However, a drawback of the device is that it cannot function without a heart monitor.

Koress plans to commercialize the device and organize seminars to train manufacturers on how to build the device. However currently the data and documentation is available exclusively in Japanese, the only other language in which twitter is available today.
