If you drain buckets at an impressively high rate, so high in fact you are always losing count of how many shots you’ve made, you’ll love this project from Team IOT Basketball up on Hackster.io.
For all the people out there who love the sport of basketball, keeping track of all the made shots can be a real hassle. The score in the final minutes of the game can be crucial to determining who wins. We have developed the solution to this dilemma. Our project allows someone to easily measure and keep track of baskets made in an accurate way. With just two photons, two power sources and two PIR sensors, the score will never be forgotten again.

Half-size breadboard: This is a cute half size breadboard, good for small projects. It’s 2.2″ x 3.4″ (5.5 cm x 8.5 cm) with a standard double-strip in the middle and two power rails on both sides. You can pull the power rails off easily to make the breadboard as thin as 1.4″ (3.5cm) and stick it onto an Arduino protoshield. You can also cut these in half with a saw to create 2 tiny breadboards, or “snap” these breadboards together either way to make longer and/or wider breadboards. (read more)
