Kenneth Rich wrote in to share his wireless scoreboard. He wanted a scoreboard to use at his daughter’s softball events, and wasn’t happy with the expensive commercial display, so he decided to make his own. Pretty impressive for a first project!
Take a look at the electronic scoreboard I built for my daughters’ softball games. I built everything from scratch with the exception of the Wifly GSX WiFi module (which I sourced from Sparkfun), and the SMPS I scavenged from a car cell phone charger. This project is my first attempt at building a useful electronic device. The scoreboard is wireless so that it can be controlled by any WiFi capable device like an iPhone, Google phone, etc. I am currently in the planning stages for the App I will develop to control the board, so there is much more to come. Hopefully I will have an update by the end of the summer.
