On my previous team, we liked to have “pull-up standups”—after our status meeting, we’d take turns on the pullup bar, keeping a whiteboard tally of our personal records.
I built a sensor and record-keeping system for our office pull-up bar. You scan your work badge, then it counts your pullups and adds them to your record.
- Raspberry Pi with touchscreen LCD.
- Wi-Fi connected with web UI
- RFID badge reader
- IR proximity sensor
- 3D printed enclosure for the Pi and badge reader.
- 3D printed mount for the IR proximity sensor, to attach onto a GoPro gooseneck arm clamped onto the pullup bar.
