Introducing: HypeRate extension for Touchportal
There are plenty of heart rate widgets on the market, but how many make you feel like you could control OBS with your mind?
… or, if it at least felt like that? ;-)
Like turning off your Hue Lights when your heart rate hits 110 while playing a horror game or taking a polaroid snapshot or a clip of your biggest jumpscare on stream and post it exclusively to your discord? All while focusing on what YOU love most: Streaming!
With HypeRate and Touchportal all of these possibilities are now here for you and a lot more!
Create triggers based on your live heart rate on Touchportal like there’s no tomorrow!
