I was technical editor for Matt on this book and let me tell you it was a blast testing out the projects. If you have a Netduino or are thinking of getting one, this is a must have book... double that if you have a Windows Phone.
A Netduino Plus 2 receives a pressure sensor measurement from a punch or fist slam. It samples that punch at 10 millisecond intervals during the punch and sends that data over Bluetooth to the Windows Phone app
In the Windows Phone app the punch gets displayed in the UI within a Telerik RadGauge control to smoothly show the current hit. In the second panorama item, a RadDataBoundListBox shows the individual pressure values that were sampled.
After a punch has been successfully captured, the Windows Phone app sends that data up to Azure using Azure Mobile Services. Using Live authentication we can store the punch values alongside the puncher's name, thus creating a leader board.
Lastly, we have a Windows 8 client (WinRT) that displays the leaderboard next to a Telerik RadChart for Windows 8. The chart plots out all the 10 millisecond sampled readings which usually create a nice curve (low - high - low).
hi donna, those strange colorations on the right hand side of the emulator also appeared on mine. Don't worry, after I had navigated through some screens and went back tot he start screen it dissappeared on its own. Also, I had resized my emulator larger than 50%, so that might help you as well.
