Vibration Sensor - How to?

For my project I need a good vibration sensor that can detect knocks on different surfaces. I want to able to get the sensor data directly to my windows pc where I can write code for.

Hi, perhaps a few more details about your project will help us to point you in the right direction. When you say you want to get the sensor data to your computer, how are you looking to do that? USB, Bluetooth etc.? Do you want to store that sensor data in a folder on your computer? Or simply read it from a serial monitor?
