Research Electronics

A research lab at Harvard needed a way to time how synchronously two people were able to clap to the same music. They had a very limited budget and did not have anyone with the time or skills necessary to do any significant post-processing of video or audio files.

After determining the best data format to be delivered to the client, I designed, tested, and implemented a standalone solution for just under $100 in parts. The hardware was linked to a custom application that counted claps and output a .csv file of the results.
