Abstract

We present our first steps towards an umbrella-based novel multimedia platform using physiological data as an integrated feedback loop. In this paper, we demonstrate the viability of using an umbrella handle as a form factor to measure electrodermal activity(EDA) and heart rate(HR) in real-Time. We compared the performance of the device with that of a more conventional finger sensor placement. Although the finger sensor placement is more widespread and considered to be more reliable, yet we are able to derive meaningful data from the umbrella handle in both stationary and dynamic contexts in the presented feasibility study.
