    Hi all

    I am currently designing a scaled up version of the 'steady hand game' (bent wire, looped wire and buzzer type thing). Its going to be massive for use whilst riding a motorcycle. What I am trying to steer away from is a trailing lead from the hand peice, (a tennis racket), as this will just get in the way.

    Does anybody have any ideas how I might achive this. My first thoughts were down the faraday switch route, with a capacitor in the handle of the racket??? or using a transistor as a switch but unsure if they require a circuit between emitter and base.

    Any help or ideas would be fantastic!!!

    I gotta see what the mods say about this first.

    If the driver of the motorcycle trying to do this with one hand and drive with one had?

    Yes the rider will have one hand on the 'racket' and the other on the throttle. All in straight line at very low speed.

    Oh and leather gloves too!

    I wonder how small I could get a static generator....

    That tends to cause distraction to the driver, not to mention what happens if something grabs the racket. Not smart or safe.
