An interactive punchbag

This project was made during the course Physical interaction design and realization on Kungliga Tekniska högskolan in Stockholm. The idea was to make a punch bag with different hit-zones in different colors. Instead of just hitting the punch bag randomly like you normally do, a voice guide will tell the player/user in what order to hit the different zones. The user will via audio feedback get information about correct hits and also a kind of encouraging/scolding depending how good the task was handled. We made our own buttons and connected those to an Arduino microcontroller, this was connected to a computer than ran a java program to handle the inputs and audio feedback.
