Foosball table uses Arduino to put scores on web

Posted on Thursday, May 26th, 2011 in Arduino by the machinegeek

The gang at SinnerSchrader have combined their love of foosball and their passion for digital solutions to make the world’s first digital foosball game. The project uses optical sensors to detect the scoring of goals. These sensors are read with the Arduino which sends it over WiFi to the server which then makes it available over the internet via mobile Webapp and on their agency foosball league’s webpage.

They promise that the source code will be published on their site very soon.

    What’s next? “Arduino on toilet tweets when I take a dump.” Or has that already been done?

    Sorry… It’s rag on Arduino day today – plus I’m bored.
