Meditation Metronome / Incense Holder

Meditation Metronome

Meditation is the basic practice in most religions. However, it’s difficult for beginners to focus on their inside. They usually try to meditate with a constant rhythm, breathing, but sometimes they lose their concentration due to paying too much attention to outbreath. To solve this, We’ve adopted heartbeat, their own unique rhythm and constantly repeated regardless of their state.
Meditation Metronome measures the heart rate of the user with the pulse sensor and visualizes it by moving the incense stick. It’s easier to find their own beat than using hands. In addition, the fragrance spreading around make them relaxed and comfortable state.
