Microsoft earbuds monitor wearers’ health to help pick the next song

As part of their latest project called Septimu, Microsoft is working to incorporate health monitoring and mood detection into a pair of earbuds.  Capable of monitoring heart rate, temperature and other biorhythms, the in-ear device would even be able to select the most appropriate music depending on your mood.

 

The earphones incorporate sensors such as thermometers, inward-facing microphones and IMUs – which work a lot like accelerometers – to pick up on key indicators throughout your body. Apart from using the headphones to correct your posture, they can also act as a health and exercise diary, providing a low-cost coaching solution, or a non-invasive form of remote medical care.
