Lung – A device that visualizes breathing data using soap bubbles

Philips recently asked the second and third year Interaction Design students at ArtEZ Academy of the Arts Arnhem (the Netherlands) to develop a project about the Quantified Self. Amy Whittle and Willem Kempers teamed up and chose breathing as their focus, the physiological act of respiration required to sustain life that can be both subconscious and controlled. Their goal was to make people aware of their breathing habits by making breathing data more legible.

As anyone can testify, taking a deep breath before a nerve-racking experience can calm that anxiety, but to what further extent can controlled breathing benefit the human body?
