Well, those 35 boards went quick. So quick in fact that by the time we tried to make a live display of the total number of boards left on a PyPortal they were all gone…
To prove how easy it was to create a live progress tracking display like this with Dashblock, we used the stats from the Tilt Five Kickstarter, which is currently taking preorders for its Holographic Gaming Table.
Tilt Five liked it so much they even put out a free tee-shirt contest for the first five people to get this running on their own PyPortal!
