An avid swimmer, Hobeika noted the absence of a heart rate monitor designed specifically for swimmers. As a contestant on the Qatar-based reality show Stars of Science, Hobeika made sure this problem was addressed by creating Butterfleye, a technology that allows swimmers to see real-time data in their goggles while they swim. As the winner of the 2012 MIT Enterprise Forum Arab Business Plan Competition, she was able to launch her start-up, now called Instabeat. Her product was also tested by 15 Olympic swimmers during the 2012 London Olympic games.
