I'm an avdid jump roper for exercise. I am unhappy with the quality of the counters I find on standard jump ropes. Thinking of building and/or buying an independent counter i could use for any rope I choose.
I would want it to count steps as rope passes some sort of sensor.(along with other options) BTW I saw one on youtube, but the link for the product suggested it could damage my computer so I did not follow it.
I don't have any knowledge about electronics, but am willing to learn.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to:
1. Use a light sensor vs. a sound sensor
2. Any pre-built units available
3. In no to #2 then suggestions as to how a real novice should get started.
Thanks to all
