How to Build Your own Pi Powered Cricket Score Monitor @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Awesome buil and write-up from Rohit Gunta, especially if you’re a crazed cricket fan.
Cricket used to be awesome ! So did Maggie and Television Sitcoms (particularly Indian ones these days). But there is something with cricket that makes us nostalgic and still we watch it no matter how much time it kills. But what about Office (Sadly enough)? All the cricket sites that stream are blocked. Even the live updates page end up with the same old WebSense Blocked page. People resort to apps that make use of the feeble internet connectivity in the area and after almost five minutes elapsed after the brain triggered a craving for the latest score it gets satisfied but sad. We were three down in a important match. This adds to the interest and a chain reaction starts. We all have went through this multiple times.
Thanks for the Adafruit shout out, Rohit!
Many thanks to Adafruit for their amazing Python Library for the LCD already available that made things easy.
