A new guide today in the Adafruit Learning System: PyLeap ESP32-S2 TFT Boxing Glove Tracker w/ Adafruit IO
Track your punches with precision on Adafruit IO using this accelerometer-powered Boxing Glove tracker with an ESP32-S2 TFT!
This project allows you to build your custom Boxing Glove Tracker using a Feather ESP32-S2 TFT running CircuitPython with an ADXL345 accelerometer. The ESP32-S2 TFT reads accelerometer data to measure the force of punches you throw.
This project will show you how to assemble the boxing glove tracker, gather sensor data, and display that data on Adafruit IO using CircuitPython.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
