Thank you

A big thank you to all our initial supporters for keeping us going. We are happy that our campaign was funded and we intend to start assembly and delivery as planned. All products will be shipped on time to all backers. You will hear from us before we are ready to ship.

Hackaday Superconference

We were down at Pasadena, CA for the annual Hackaday Superference. I gave a talk about the potential impact of HeartyPatch and other open source healthcare devices. Hackaday has promised to post a recoding of this talk soon on their Youtube channel.

We are also very happy to find HeartyPatch among the top 5 contenders for the Best Product prize, although we didn’t win the final prize.

The HeartyPatch Android app

We have been working on an Android app for the HeartyPatch for a while now. Android (and apps in general) is a new platform for us and we are getting on pretty good.

We have a very preliminary version of the app running and it’s exciting. It’s still got a few bugs in them, so be sure to let us know on GitHub Issues about any issues you face.

The features planned for the future versions of the app include:

Source code and documentation will be posted as soon as we get a chance to clean up the very messy code. It will also be available for download from the Google Play store soon.

Meanwhile, if you are feeling adventurous and want to try out the very early alpha version, you can download the APK file from our GitHub repo. Source code is not posted at this time.

Again, this app is an alpha release only and may or may not work with your device. Also, BLE support is required.
