Baka Analytics

I have a pet hamster named Baka. Baka spends most of his free time running on a hamster wheel. I put together a device to track the hamster wheel's rotation. It uses a Raspberry Pi 2, a magnetic sensor, and Google Analytics. Here is a webpage with live coverage of Baka's running: He tends to run about 6 kilometers per day (13,000 rotations) and sticks to a strict schedule of running between 10pm and 6am.
