The player would have to syncronize his own heartbeat to the heartbeat sound played in-game, by relaxing or exciting himself. We hadn't the code for measure the bpm of the heart in real-time, so we did a workaround for demostrate the concept: the player taps the space bar at his own heartbeat rythm. In the future we want to achieve the real-time heartbeat measuring the blood pressure via placing a finger in the smartphone camera, as some apps do.
Made in Macromedia Flash 8 due to lack of programming skills. We plan to rebuild it for smartphone and HTML5.
