Happy New 2020 Year!

A project log for uECG - a very small wearable ECG

It's cheap, doesn't use a specialized heart rate AFE and can blink LEDs with your pulse :)

Well, it was an interesting year, that's for sure!

Things happening all around the world. Climate change, obviously. Hong Kong! Trump impeachment!

And last, but not least - a big step for us, small step for humanity: first uECG production! 

Yes, we know that we promised uECGs will be in stock on Tindie before Christmas. At least one of us did, because she ran out of symbols for the product url update (that'd be me, by the way), and "B4 XMAS" sounded so 2000. That is, if you noticed the new ETA on tindie product page at all. Well, technically, they were in stock, but nobody could buy them yet :3

Why didn't we add the stock? Short version: because capitalism! Hard to set up payments if you belong to a non-PayPal country. And also we suddenly found a small current leak through the ADC chip, which we needed to fix and test. Aaand we found out that Ukrainian air mail doesn't ship devices with batteries to several countries, including the US. Turned out they do send (with a twist), but several other challenges awaited us!

Long version: in a log a couple days after New Year.

Happy holidays, late Merry Christmas and happy New Year to everyone! 

Here's some holiday uECGs for you:

New Year, new battery of 250 microamperes!
