Reaction Time Calculator

I designed an interactive program with Python that allows a player to test his or her reaction time.

Once a player starts my interactive program, the terminal prompts will ask him or her to press the ENTER key when they see the word PIKACHU. My program would test a player’s reaction time for 30 trials and give summary results of reaction time in the end. Notice that the reaction time measured in my program is the time when a player sees the word PIKACHU to the time him or her hit the ENTER key on the keyboard.

Here is a video demo of myself testing my reaction time. Here is the python code for my interactive program! Feel free to git clone my folder and run “python” in my folder to launch the program!
