Smart Rope is much more than just a jump rope. It is a high-tech fitness device that displays your workout quality before your eyes, suggests workouts based on your previous activity, and counts calories burned based on your BMI.

The rope, which was created by design-inspired company Tangram Factory in Seoul, South Korea, is part of an initiative to bring data into your workout. The goal of the rope is to use data to inspire and fuel your fitness routine rather than just passively measure your activity.

Smart Rope is the first fitness technology from Tangram Factory, which hopes to expand it’s Smart Gym line with other data-displaying workout gear.

The jump rope goes live on Kickstarter on February 25, but you can learn more from on Smart Rope’s website.
