It’s Maker Faire Season Again!

The Sports Clock is a project I’m working on for Maker Faire Bay Area 2016. It will look like a regular digital clock, but will be internet connected and display sports scores when your favorite teams are playing.

The Sports Clock will be very useful since it allows people to stay updated with their favorite team’s game while not adding any additional distractions like a radio, tv, or smartphone would. It feels terrible when your favorite team is playing but you have to do work, and the Sports Clock solves this by allowing you to be fully focused on your work (no multitasking!) but still fully connected to your teams.

Primary Objectives of the Sports Clock:

  • Build a backend to serve up sports scores
  • Build an internet connected clock with a LED matrix display to  display sports scores
  • Build an iOS app to control which team’s score your clock will display
