Question about Project to Detect Hand Motion


I’m looking to make a device that is able to read when the user shakes hand with another person (through some sort of sensor on the user’s hand most likely). What would be the best way to achieve this?

Are there any similar projects that you can direct me towards? And any parts you would suggest?

Thanks so much for the help! I appreciate it.

Accelerometer or or 6 degree sensor with gyro perhaps?

I would imagine you would just parse/check the data passed on that.. (similar to a Wii nun-chuck or something)

A place to start.
