Industrial designer Stephan Hooft engineered ‘smart’ Nunchaku-sticks with sensors and a bluetooth connection, that can help arbiters in the combat sport nunchaku-do.

Two sticks connected by a rope or chain
‘danger-sticks’ they are or Nunchaku
When sportsmen fight with them the way they do
the referees are driven quite insane

Because, you see, it all just goes so quick
that actually one does not see at all
It's very hard for refs to make the call
of who did what to whom and with what stick

Some technical assistance would be nice
to show the arbiter what just went down
so he can tell the truth without a crease

A real Smart-Nunchaku is the device
it should eliminate the slightest frown
and easily settle every fight in peace.
