I wanted to learn something new during this epidemic and decided to learn dancing however soon later I was uncertain if my posture was correct thus I contacted my friend to assist me with it yet at the same time it was almost difficult to tell where I was turning out badly, so myself and my friend decided to make pebble to help us out with this issue. Pebble has not only helped me to correct my posture but has also been a fun collaborative platform with friends, in fact, we hosted a dance party with all of our friends on pebble.

Challenges I ran into
- NodeMCU couldn't interface with MPU6050 (Gyroscope) at very high frequency due to the reduced clock speed.
- Had to switch to an Arduino UNO and due to the lack of an ESP8266, had to bootstrap a server to send the data wirelessly over the device.
- Ran out of components
- Due to the low bandwidth, Internet Speed was terrible and couldn't download most of the DL models.
