Abstract

We present EdiPulse that creates 3D printed chocolates displaying cheerful messages using the heart rate data of physical activity. Our work expands the view on representing physical activity data through the use of edible materials such as chocolates, which additionally serves as a hedonic reward for doing the physical activity. Ultimately, with this work, we aim to inspire and guide design thinking on food printing, which we believe opens up new interaction possibilities to support the physical activity experience.
