Make Your Own World Cup Match Notifier #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Make this fun goal notifier using Little Bits, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi. by taipeihackerspace via instructables

Can’t watch the World Cup football games, but want to know when important game events (ie. goals) happen? Then littleGoal is for you!

The littleGoal setup will monitor the game’s progress, and alert you via vigorous flag-waving and a photogenic Goal! sign when anything of importance happens during your World Cup game.

It is intended to be quickly assembled, minimalistic, and pretty much ready to use for your next game!

When the game start, the two flags will be waving together, and the same will happen when the game reaches full time.

When there’s a score, the appropriate side’s flag should be waving. Check out the attached video of how does it look like!

From testing, there’s an approx. 1-2 minute delay between score and when the computer hears about it. This shouldn’t be a problem if you are not watching the game in the same time (in which case you probably don’t need littleGoal anyways:)

As you can tell from the flags, I wanted to test with the Brazil – Chile game, but the servos gave me grief, and couldn’t debug them until the next game. Hence the low-tech update to the Netherlands – Mexico flags.

  1. Thanks a lot for the feature! 😀 We are big fans of Adafruit!

    This was a very fun project to make, I will be kinda sad taking it apart to reuse the parts for other projects later. But that’s the life of hacking! Cheers!
