Idea: Electric Circuit On Grippers


Recommended Posts

I'm new to the grip world and just bought the CoC 1,2 and 3.

Here's the idea:

Why not attach a simple split wire, battery-operated apparatus to both handles (at the top or bottom of each handle) that lights a tiny diode up when the handles touch. Aluminum conducts electricity obviously, and I imagine this would be a simple, light and cheap thing to create. I don't think the steel spring would be a problem if the electrical charge was calibrated, but I'm not a mechanic.

In fencing, when the tip of the foil touches the metal vest the fencers wear, the electric current sets off a light to indicate a "touch." Same concept.

Not only would this help with verification of closes, but it would add another element to training.

So what do you think?

I think Terry Duty was working on this with a clock hooked up to measure timed closes.

One of the board members with a website has a/some photos of a gripper w/clock just as you've described - I can't find it - maybe someone else knows.
