Heartphones: Cardiovascular monitoring using earphones and a smartphone.

Many wearable biosensors have failed to gain mass adoption or popular acceptance. While not often emphasized, there is a social aspect to wearable computing. Not only do the design and expense of a wearable computer reflect the user's taste, these factors also influence the wearer's acceptance and opinion of the device. To address this, I integrated physiological sensing capabilities into a platform already widely accepted for daily use, exploiting sensor-embedded earbuds and a smartphone.
