I want to build myself a hammer game, like the old type where you hit it a spot with the hammer and the goal is to ring the bell. But I want to make it digital, and capture the data from a load cell. You hit the load cell with the hammer, it reads the data and shows you your score in lbs/kgs.
Is this possible with an Arduino? I found this video on YouTube, but the price of this setup sent me in this direction, almost 2k$ for the setup in his video.
I guess if I can find a cheap load cell that outputs enough data to get a reading in 0,2ms. The system he is using outputs 500 readings/sec according to the information on his site. If anyone has a tip to a decent priced high output load cell that could handle multiple hits with a sledgehammer, please let me know
