Good afternoon. I am currently attempting to build a circuit for my university dissertation. I am looking to build a cct that would use an accelerometer to sense vibration from say a gearbox of a helicopter to a storage device before being transferred via Bluetooth to a laptop. My questions are. 1) would this be feasible 2) how and what materials would I require in order to build a prototype? Thank you very much in advance for your time over this

hi,  you could probably build something quite quickly with Arduino and modules;  perhaps stream the data to a SD card module,  then add a Bluetooth module and code up a listener to wait for a special command and then stream that data off the SD card to a laptop.
