Experience sonification and visualization when practicing boxing punches


Our main sensors are put into the boxing gloves, they include accelerometer and gyroscope. Then in the show, we give users this pair of boxing gloves and a Thai Pad to play with each other, basically asking them to punch like a professional boxer practicing. We will use the data sent out from boxing gloves (through bluetooth) to control the Spot Light, which is set up on top of the show area, and Sound Effect (speaker connected to laptop) around this area. Let user experience the spot light changing (colours, strobe) and sound beats changing according to the punching gestures they made.
