IC HealthHack 2017

IChealthhack

IC HealthHack is a hackathon organized by Imperial College London combining bioengineering and computing to produce “serious games in the public health sector taking advantage of biomedical technologies”. This was the first year this kind of hackathon was organised by Imperial and it was great fun! Teams got together to build cool stuff such as a program giving the user alerts when they’re slouching in front of a computer, various games utilising Microsoft Fizzyo device to help make physiotherapy of cystic fibrosis patients more enjoyable, and analysis of large samples of data to see how likely patients are to turn up late to appointments. Read on to see what our team built and skip to the end to see the project links! Read On…

Automatic METAR Data Collector

In this post I’ll show you how you can make a program which will automatically collect data from some website and then further process it. More specifically, I’ll show you how I made myself a PHP script to periodically download half-hourly METAR reports from the website of the Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute and then processed them to show a plot of how temperature and pressure changes over time. You can easily adapt this for any kind of data collection you might wish to do, for example logging of exchange rates over time. So, let’s start! Read On…
