Records acceleration during motion when suspended by an elastic cord.

The Kookaberry has a built-in accelerometer to measure acceleration and record it in an on-board file in the CSV format for later analysis and graphing using a spreadsheet program on a PC.

A low-resolution graph of acceleration is provided on the Kookaberry display.

Educative applications
  • Understanding gravity and other acceleration forces
  • Explore the behaviour of different elastic materials used as bungee cords
  • Observe acceleration patterns for different motion,
    eg. bungee, pendulum, centrifuge, free-fall and (cushioned) impact
  • Experiment with and observe the effect of additional mass
