Made by Furries: The Heart Rate Monitor

Furries contribute to society in many ways, be it charities or inventing things we use today. But did you know a furry made the heart rate monitor?

Yes—Spotacus the Cheetah invented that set of flashing green lights in your fitness tracker. Their real name is David Benaron: a biochemist, inventor, and entrepreneur.

He founded many biotechnology companies, including medical sensor firm Spectros.

Spotacus invented a new kind of oximeter in 2005. Instead of infrared, it uses LED light to measure how much oxygen is flowing through someone’s body.

In an interview with PCMag, Spotacus says it has got over 100 patents.

Aside from science work, Spotacus has been active in the furry community since joining Canadian furcon Further Confusion in 2000. Fun fact: he owns 46 fursuits!


#兽圈制造:心率监测器

无论是慈善捐赠还是发明我们今天使用的东西,兽迷们都以多种方式为社会做出贡献。但你是否知道,有一位兽迷制造了心率表吗?

是的——猎豹“斑竹”(Spotacus)发明了你的健身追踪器中的那组闪烁的绿灯。他们的真名是大卫-贝纳隆:一个生物化学家、发明家和企业家。

他创立了许多生物技术公司,包括医疗传感器公司Spectros。

2005年,“斑竹”发明了一种新的血氧仪。它不使用红外线,而是使用LED光来测量流经某人身体的氧气的多少。

在接受PCMag采访时,“斑竹”说其已获得了100多项专利。

除了科学工作外,“斑竹”自2000年去了加拿大兽展 Further Confusion 以来,在兽圈内很活跃。来个趣事:他拥有46件兽装。
