    070528 Bluetooth Tests/Development
    Project: Design Media Arts at UCLA
    I decide that the Nonin Bluetooth Heart Meter/Oximeter was the best and most affordable choice for wireless sensing heart rate and respiratory data. The order was placed so now it was time to figure how I would take this data and bring it into Processing for use in manipulating content. Because I wouldn't have the unit for a few days yet, I began testing using my Bluetooth GPS Devise.

    I set up the GPS devise in the bluetooth control panel and told Bluetooth to port data through the serial port. This potential would allow me to access this data using the serial library in processing. I open up processing, read a few references, and in no time I was reading packets of data from the GPS devise. Of course, this data was just jibberish, but the reference included with the heart meter seemed to be pretty extensive so that I would easily be able to parse it into something that made sense.
