what would I have to change if I wanted to feed the data directly to my laptop?

Replace calls to "datafile.println" with calls to "Serial.println". That will stream the data back to your computer via the USB/Serial connection.

Hello all, this project is a good basis for what I want to do, only with motion vs impact.

If i want to use the same hardware, will this support the use of an exernal display counter, such as the https://www.adafruit.com/products/3130

keeping small and compact is best, and i am hoping to normalize the movement in most one axis and provide a counter for that complete motion ie, up and down) plus ome button for resetting the values to zero, etc.

I originally would use a Rpi3 + wiimote to do this, but this seems like a much more compact idea

The #3130 Alphanumeric Feather Wing is best paired with one of our Feather processors. Any of which are capable of interfacing with the accelerometers as well:

The easiest one to get started with is probably the Feather 32U4 basic: https://www.adafruit.com/products/2771

See table 4 on page 9 of the datasheet. The board is shipped with 0.1 uF caps - giving it an out-of-the-box bandwidth of 50 Hz.
It should be possible to achieve 1KHz by replacing the caps.
