Watch a Dude Control the Tempo to ‘Call Me Maybe’ with His Heartbeat
“Music Hack Day” is a 24 hour event at MIT that brings together music and the nerds to do cool shit with technology. For his project, Ryan Challinor drew upon a heart rate monitor to help him create his cool shit, using the instrument to manipulate the tempo of a song. To demonstrate, Challinor used “Call Me Maybe,” a relatively obscure pop song by a Canadian who exercises the right to flaunt her middle name. Think a more familiar jam could've fit better here, but I guess well have to settle with this for now.
