Thanks! Actually I've redesigned some pieces to make them thicker (like the nail). And I've also printed them with another orientation: for example I've printed the nail horizontally so it bends less easily.

This is a funny question! I guess that listening through the windows with a stethoscope might work, as the air compression would make the window to vibrate at similar frequencies. Moreover, I have heard that you can catch a speech behind a window if you are standing far away, just using a laser pointing at the window and analyzing the beam intensity fluctuations of the light. Take a look at this:About the audio fidelity, I guess it would depend on the distance of the speaker from the window, the window thickness, etc... If I can I'll try, and I'll tell you!

Here is a small piece that is going to enclose some wires, a switch and serves as a battery holder!
Your project is very interesting, and if you have time and motivation I would suggest to build it ;) But as I said before I cannot help you because I have no idea about these module and I don't know how it will react in the configuration you want to build it (the box on the stick). But before you start:If you are not confident with these modules and the Arduino board, it might take a lot of time and you have to be aware of this. It took me few weeks to build mine, because I had to learn how the arduino board works, and how to make the program to control it. Also, it might not work as expected at the end but don't be disappointed!

I have tried the app "mMesure" form the famous petanque brand "Obut", but indeed it takes time to use and it does not give the distance between the objects but just the some numbers according to the position (closest ball is mentioned 1, the second 2, etc...). I have no idea about using such devices in competition, but I think it is not allowed. To be sure the device you proposed gives better results I suggest to simply try the VL53LOX, and make sure it fits for measures on petanque balls. That was one of the mistake I made, I did not try on the petanque balls before to build it (I tried on a glass, but it is different...), and the result was a bit disapointing.

I made my own project instead of the bike fender. It is a battery holder that can fit in a specific box. Here is the link of the object: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Snailamp-Box/s...This first project was a small one but I have many other ongoing projects that are really exciting!!
Great job! I am waiting for a video!

I don't know if it is better or worse, but anyway it is quite interesting and worth give it a try! ;) I guess it depends on your skills and your knowledge about the VL53LOX and mpu6050. Did you already make projects with these modules? I have never used them, but after a quick research on the internet, the VL53LOX seems to be much better than the ultrasonic sensor I have used. About the mpu6050, it seems more complicated to use as I suppose you will have to add some motors to keep the pipe vertically... Upload a picture and add a comment when you're done with this project, I'd be interested to see how you made it and how it works!

Yes, that is exactly how it works. However I'm not sure the ultra sound beam hits the equator of the balls...I was also thinking to add a motor to rotate the sensor. The sensor records the distance for each step of the motor, for 180° for example. At the end, the 2 smallest distances are printed on the LCD screen, and it should correspond to the 2 nearest balls (if there is no other object on the playground). As a control, a ring made with LEDs centered on the jack could verify that the objects correspond to the balls. The LED pointing in the direction of the 1st ball is blinking, the LED pointing in the direction of the 2nd ball lights continuously.

I think there is no problem it should work as well. The difference is that the the 3d spectacles I have used are circularly polarized, while your lcd polarization filter is probably linearly polarized. But it will give the same effect. Did you try to overlap 2 filters and rotate one to see what is happening?
