I'm starting to think about how to create a clothing embedded hardware piece which detects a punch, kick, chop or other kind of vigorous motion. I'm struggling with what kind of hardware to use to detect the action.
I'm pretty sure I could pull this off with a series of accelerometers, but that seems expensive and cumbersome to sew into clothing. Writing here to see if anyone has ideas on how to pull something like this off.
Thanks for any help you can provide,
