Dot Punch (Working Title)

The aim of this project is to create a frame of training pads that are able to light up in different sequences and register someone striking them. Much like the game “whack-a-mole” but with more focus on martial arts. The frame will be driven by a Raspberry Pi & Python.

Part 1: Controlling LEDs with RPi.GPIO

Part 2: Capturing Input with RPi.GPIO
