What does it do?

SpinBit is a lightweight clip on device to record your spins over time when dancing and/or preforming, when you cannot have your phone on your person. It allows you to track your spin for improvement over time or to share with your friends.


Many performance arts include spinning as a common motion. Just as a walker may want to track their steps throughout the day, many performers would like to track their spins for practice, performance, and bragging rights.


The SpinBit will be a small device that can be clipped to the waist to track when the user completes a rotation in a certain time frame. The device connects to a phone via bluetooth where the data is stored, timestamped, and possibly shared.


A gyroscope will be used to track the users rotation, and a bluetooth module will send data from the sensor to the users phone.


The mobile application will be used to log incoming data from the wearable device, graph this data over time, change device settings, and share data with other users.
