Challenge to Visualize Feelings with Sensing Technology
WINFrontier is based on the Nonprofit Organization “The Advanced Institute of Wearable Environmental Information Networks” (commonly known as NPO WIN), which was founded in 2000 by the University of Tokyo professor KIYOSHI ITAO (currently emeritus professor of the University of Tokyo). It is a unique organization that has been linked by NPO and academic conference(Academy of Human Informatics). Our main focus is the development and research of products and services related to humans (health) using advanced sensing technology.
Put your fingertip on the smartphone camera for about 30 sec, detect heart rate variability from skin color changes, and easily “visualize” 10 types of feelings (stress / relaxation tendency, fatigue, concentration, etc.) .
Unique Tech and High Raliability
More than 80% corelation achieved between measurement by smartphone camera and by optical pulse sensing probe (medical device), which was published in Academy of Human Informatics in 2015
Practice Yuki Shiina’s “ZEN Breathing Method” and measure its relaxation effect by just putting your fingertip on top of the smartphone camera for over 30sec
What is “ZEN Breathing Method”?
“ZEN Breathing Method” is based on a breathing method written by Zen Master Hakuin Ekaku(1686-1769). His method has been practiced for centuries in Japan and passed down among Zen priests, professional athelets, and a wide variety of performing artists. Yuki Shiina, who has overcome her physical ailments by this Zen Master’s method, made it more understandable and added more effective ways to reach every single person worldwide.
Feeling Visualization Engine (SDK)to be built in your own app and calculate stress / relaxation status, fatigue and concentration level by detecting heart rate valiablity via smartphone camera or wearable appliances (wristband, watch, ring and so on)
