# vision research, 1 minutes

Project Goal: Create an app that guides a juggler though a training session. There are two lesson options, ball juggling lesson and the club juggling lesson. The ball juggling lesson takes users from warmup to 7b cascade. The club juggling lesson takes users from warmup to 5 club cascade.

# 3-6 balls, vision research, 1 minutes

Making a juggling app for android. After two and a half painfully slow courses from Udacity, I made a multi-page app for juggling training.

How the app works:

  • The app displays the text, "Juggle three balls." When the user taps a button, a song plays.
  • When the song finishes, the app displays the text, "Juggle 4 balls. A song plays when the user taps a button.
  • This continues for several songs.


Training with an app like this is definitely better than just training with music. The app controls practice structure, and I can focus on juggling.

Back training after a few days off due to being sick with a cold.

Fell asleep during a warmup walk on the treadmill. Walked off the side, but did not fall down.

Psudocode (for OpenCV):

  • Convert the BGR image to HSV
  • Split the image into three channels: hue, saturation, and value
  • Change hue, and leave saturation and value alone
  • Merge channels
  • Convert back to BGR

# 5-7 balls, 5 clubs, 1 minutes

Juggled well.

Ran 7b for 100 catches in 4 minutes.

Ran 5c for 100 catches on third try. My expectation for 5 clubs is to run 5 clubs for 100 catches to a clean collect. Every time.

5c triples a little painful, considering gloves.

ran 7b for 100 catches on first try; spent another 20 minutes to get 150 catches.

ran 5c for 100 catches on the first try.

new 4c pattern 55244. Easier than 534, more fun to juggle, and looks cooler.

# 5 clubs, 7 balls, 1 minutes

Felt so fat. Like a week ago, I started eating a ton of candy. Eating lots of sugar makes me puff up and feel bad. After warming up today, I had to stop and use the bathroom :(

No juggling since Friday. Even though I felt bad, I juggled well:

Time to run 7b (110 catches): 2 minutes
Time to run 5c (100 catches clean): 3 minutes

Total practice time: 1 minutes
