Summary: 
We propose an idea generation support system known as the “GUNGEN-Heartbeat” that uses heartbeat variations for creating high quality ideas during brainstorming. This system shows “An indication of a check list” or “An indication to promote deep breathing” at time beyond a value with variance of heart rates. We also carried out comparison experiments to evaluate the usefulness of the system.
