Can our heartbeats synchronize with each other during shared experiences? Harmonious Heartbeats is a shared meditative experience that aims to promote non-verbal communication between two users by depicting their emotions as visuals on a screen. The emotions are measured by biosensors to transform data into visuals. Blue colors represent a relaxed state, while orange visuals indicate a higher degree of stress. Harmonious Heartbeats focuses on helping people connect with each other through watching the rhythm of their hearts synchronize over time with the movements in the visuals, and encourages the viewers to take deep breaths and calm themselves down as they experience how the visuals are affected by their emotional state.
