In Your Face: That’s Where This Jump Rope Displays Its Skip Count

In Your Face: That’s Where This Jump Rope Displays Its Skip Count

jump-rope-count-display

Working out pretty much always involves counting something, whether it’s the number of reps you’re doing, or how long it takes you to do something else. When you’re lifting weights, keeping track of your count is pretty easy, but when skipping rope…

Eh, who cares about all this intro? Look, the Smart Rope uses sensors and 23 LEDs to display your count in mid-air, right in front of you, as you skip. Ok? That’s the gimmick here. It uses a process called Persistence of Vision, and in addition of displaying your skip count, it can show you other data like calories burned or time elapsed. It’s a “smart” rope because it connects to your smartphone to give you additional options, like sharing and storing the data you generate while you bounce around. It’s $89.
