My colleagues ordered new carts and we used our PLC time this morning to see how we like them. These connect to a computer over Bluetooth and have an integrated 3-axis accelerometer and a force sensor. Pasco makes these carts.

One of the features of the software (Capstone) I liked was that to show data on a graph, you have to choose what to show. I think that step makes the student think about what they want to see rather than have the choices made for them.
