Simple (I hope) Treadmill Incline indicator
I have an older treadmill that has a button to control the incline, but doesn't display the incline. I have a treadmill program app on my iPhone that guides me through a exercise session by telling me to set the speed and incline many times throughout the 30 minutes I am on the treadmill.
I would like to build something to display the incline as I adjust it.
I have just enough memory from all my childhood Radio Shack projects learning to not be afraid to attempt this and also the vast knowledge of the internet :)
I have already calculated and marked the incline differences on the frame of the treadmill near my feet but I can't really see it well.
I figure a small LED display would work best. I can visualize running wires up and down the frame to the LED display to an arm that will move with the treadmill while hitting contacts. I am sure I can get this to work but it sure seems like a lot of wires so I feel I am missing something.
If anyone has any suggestions about an easy way to do this or can draw me a diagram of what I would need, I would be forever grateful.
