Fujitsu Software Can Measure Your Pulse With Your Smartphone’s Camera

Fujitsu has been working on a new software that has the ability to check someone’s pulse rate by recording their face. Fujitsu says a pulse rate can be detected within five seconds. The new software will use a camera to detect haemoglobin in your blood, which will absorb green light. It will show your heart rate after measuring variations of brightness caused by the flow of blood. Fujitsu’s technology can use a camera in a smartphone, tablet or computer.

Fujitsu said in its press release, “Even at a busy workplace, or any time a person is sitting in front of a PC, whether for teleconferencing or writing e-mails, their pulse can be measured during brief moments of quiet.”

Fujitsu plans to make the new technology available by 2014.
