Pulse Lamp Syncs with your Heartbeat

This is a funky looking lamp from designer Matty Salin and it comes with a rather interesting functionality. If you place your hands on either side of the lamp base and wait 6~10 seconds, it will detect your heartbeat and start throbbing in sync.

The idea is to amplify a usually inconspicuous biological function, and give the user a biofeedback handle with which to control it.

The light is hypnotic, and after a while you can actually watch your pulse slow down by concentrating and relaxing.
