Your heartbeat causes micro color changes on your face. Our software uses camera and advanced software algorithm to detect these micro changes, with beat-to-beat accuracy.

Yup. This is a pretty new concept. If you google "non contact photoplethysmography", you will realize this is an on-going research being done in many research labs. What we do is, we realize this concept in smart phone :)

We are not genius :*) We just simply stand on the shoulder of giants (All the researchers in this field). We merely implement their idea on smart phone. I guess we are not the first one. I somehow came across an app with similar idea named MedCam (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.cupel.MedCam)

Do you guys have any independent test data to back the claims up? It sounds almost too good to be true... 8o

Similar research had been done in MIT.

Currently, we still preparing sourcing for independent test data to back up our claims. Stay tune. Meanwhile, you may visit our temporary website to learn more : http://whatsmyheartrate.appspot.com/

Hi Yan,

Congrats on the release on your app, however I will have to remove the link to your website. Only links to free apps can be published, as posting links to websites can be seen as promotion and goes against our forum rules.

Thanks for your understanding and best of luck with the app!
