Any project to celebrate 2014 FIFA World Cup with Arduino?

It's men's week now. And have you done something for 2014 FIFA World Cup with Arduino?

No not intended to, but some ideas:

one could make a small sketch that predicts the outcome of each game

worst example ever :wink:
...
Serial.print(random(5));
Serial.print(" - ");
Serial.println(random(5));

or a sketch that you can give all the scores and it keeps the ranking lists of every pool

robtillaart:
Serial.print(random(5));
Serial.print(" - ");
Serial.println(random(5));

Baha!

Inspired on the Project Walk Again (Robotic Exoesqueleton for Kickoff of World Cup) developed by Dr. Miguel Nicolelis, we have created a "Kicking foot" using an Arduino. See the video at: From WalkAgain to Arduino - YouTube

Description:

  • Potentiometers used as angular encoders (read joints configuration) ;
  • Servo motors "copy" the other leg joints configuration;
  • Arduino: read joint (potentiometers) => write joints (servo motors)

Project developed by 16 to 17 yrs old (high school) students .

Some sort of "corruption - o - meter"?

"men's week" and soccer... where's the intersection?

Glad to reply the topic with a "YES!"

Please go to the topic I've created in "Exhibition/Gallery":
