    Change that to color shades of red depending on how hard the bag is hit or use eink to display some sort of measurement value around the bag. Da-ta! All the gyms on the planet buy your bag.

    We gotta eat to Make after all.

    Don that’s a great idea!

    You could do something like only record body blows or punches hard enough to trigger the counter. There could be limitless options for creating training regimens and whatnot.
