Hey guys, I am currently a student with a very weak coding/application background. I researched and got the basics down but its all comes down to logic and hardware.Currently I am building a soccer trainer robot that can be controlled via android app.The user utilizes a xy coordinate system to move the robot to shoot the soccer balls at that player at various speeds and angles. Basically, the android app routine is User inputs settings - > (random/preset) training -> moves robot to desired location on interactive xy gridlayout (soccerfield) -> send signals to arduino to shoot soccer balls at different speeds and angles at the user I was wondering what programs and languages I would need to know for me to develop this application. Any help would be great. Thank you!

Me and my friends have just finished GCSEs and have decided to celebrate with some midnight football. We're going to be playing in a Multi Use Games Area, essentially a big cage with a goal at each end. We don't want to floodlight it, and so we're thinking glow sticks on us and around the goals. We need a way to make the football glow or been seen however and this is where you come in. Any ideas?

The national Institute of Science and Technology and Robocup have been working on a cool thing that they're calling Nanosoccer, where nano-scale robots go around pushing a ball, ideally into a goal. It's pretty cool, it has even become a robo-nano-soccer competition. via hackaday

My school entered into a "pedal power video" competition, the challenge was to make a video showing how to use alternative sources of energy, so my school had a soccer game at night where we lit the field up using pedal power and generators. This was done by attaching a belt to the back wheel of a bike and hooking it up to a treadmill motor working in reverse for power. Enjoy!

As I said, I want to know more about soccer teams and their players. If someone knows and is willing to answer, I would be very grateful. What I'm really wanting to know right now, is what all teams are (or were) competing for the 2010 world cup? I would also really like to know each of their players and the players positions. I realize each of those are big questions by themselves. So I won't expect you to answer all, or even one. But if I could get a link that has the information on all the soccer teams, or a partial answer, that would be great. Thank you for your help. Sinisterly, The Not So Nice Guy

I have access to loads of old basketballs and soccer balls that are always floating in the river by my house. (they get washed into the river from people's yards whenever it storms) They're usually fairly worn and dry-rotted from sitting in the sun but most of them still hold air. I was trying to think of some type of outdoors, maybe flowerbed/garden related, craft I could use them for. I'm looking for practical uses or even artistic uses. I've thought about cutting them in half and making hanging planters, but we don't really have any places to put hanging planters in my yard. If you have any ideas or inspiration, please do share. Thanks!

Hi, I'm just throwing this question out there. I hope someone may find this interesting and have some ideas. Basically I am a soccer referee and would like to get my own electronic substitution sign/board for high level matches. Unfortunately I do not have $850 to $2100 to spend. You can take a look at these things from OFFICIALSPORTS.com and get an idea what they are and what they do. Thanks!

Must be about 1.7m high, for safety reasons I could just buy them, but at around £3 each, £40 for 12 just wondering if anyone has any suggestions about making their own. My initial thoughts are to use 20mm pvc pipe, but not sure of what to use as a ground 'spike' ...

Kitewife has just handed me a shiny new copy of Unseen Academicals, by The Man Himself.Back in a few hours...UPDATEI'm back, and here is my favourite passage, which I can also post with spoiling anything:[He] took a sip of his beer. 'I have told this to few people, gentlemen, and I suspect never will again, but one day when I was a young boy on holiday ... I was walking along the bank of a stream when I saw a mother otter with her cubs. A very endearing sight, I am sure you will agree, and even as I watched, the mother otter divd into the water and came up with a plump salmon, which she subdued and dragged on to a half-submerged log. As she ate it, while of course it was still alive, the body split and I remember to this day the sweet pinkness of its roes as they spilled out, much to the delight of the baby otters who scrambled over themselves to feed on the delicacy. One of nature's wonders, gentlemen: mother and children dining on mother and children. And that's when I first learned about evil. It is built into the very nature of the universe. Every world spins in pain. If there is any kind of supreme being, I told myself, it is up to all of us to become his moral superior'.

Hello guys, If you like to watch football/soocer videos online could you also maybe tell me where can I find football/soccer videos of the World Cup, Champions League, Premiere League and Bundesliga? I'd love to be able to watch all the football/soccer videos I like in one place in some dedicated football video streaming websites. So if you have any suggestions on good places where to go online and watch World Cup, Champions League, Premiere League and Bundesliga football/soccer videos do share them with me.

Question by jochemtenberge | last reply
Hi, if you are a soccer/football fan, then you have seen soccer referees in UEFA, EPL, and World Cup matches wearing and using a communication system to talk with one another. An example of this is here: http://www.crescentcomms.com/ A similar system is offered specifically for dental offices: here (NOTE: actual that website shows a lot of interesting equipment) The problems associated with this system are: -Too expensive -Too many wires -Too many pieces of equipment -Too heavy to wear (a transmitter is strapped to your shorts as you run around) -Uncomfortable to use as you are running and sweating People can build their own cheaper systems by buying 2-way walkie talkies, headsets, batteries, arm straps, etc. off the shelves. But it retains all the drawbacks. What I really envision are the following: -Secure communication (i.e. set channel/frequency) for at least 4 referees -Open communication (i.e. no need to push to talk) -Each referee wears a bluetooth headset like this one made by Platronics -Adjustable ear pieces as needed -Need to work for at least three hours straight at one time -Ideally powered by small lithium batteries (like those used for watches) -Ideally power source should be rechargeable or somehow be able to plug into USB or outlet for recharging As you can see, I really would like to see something built that can eliminate the wires, the weight, and discomfort. Keep it super simple to use and equip. If anyone has suggestions, please offer them.

I saw this video of a Japanese game show where players try to play a game of soccer with binoculars strapped to their heads: It made me think: what other kinds of games could you have, where your own perceptions were the challenge? Fisheye lenses over each eye? Periscopes? Let's hear some ideas; maybe we can come up with some cool, brand-new Instructable ideas.

Hi, I'm a soccer coach. I'd like to make some inexpensive posts to serve as obstacles/markers that I can use indoors. I have 5' pvc pipe, but can't seem to locate or concoct something to hold the posts upright both affordably and that aren't too wide to get in the way of the players or the soccer ball. Ideally, I'd have something that is only a few inches wide with a 3/4" hole in the center to hold my 3/4" pvc. Thus far, the best thing I can come up with are a few 2.5/5lb thick plastic weight plates where the center hole happens to be just about 3/4" wide. Those seem to quite difficult to come by though! The next closest thing I've found were either heavy steel flanges or rubber mounts specifically designed to hold plastic posts. At $8 or more/each though, I was hoping to find something a little less expensive. Anyone have any ideas?

My 4 year old is wheel chair bound. He is too weak to hold a bat and swing it.. So I want to attach a spring loaded baseball bat to his wheel chair, and all he does is hit a button to swing the bat. The bat would reload manually or ideally automatically. The same concept would work to 'kick' a soccer ball if we just attach the 'tool' lower on the wheelchair.

So I am not sure why we have to flag each post that is OBVIOUSLY a spam. A picture of a woman in a TIGHT pair of what can only barely be called pants or a Korean soccer team. And non English characters in the title would seem to be the only things needed to look for to get a spam flag. A spider could be written that would automatically kill any and all posts like that. Or put them in a flag folder that could be reviewed by a member of the staff. I have been a paying member of instructables for many years now and this spam thing could be the thing that makes be not come back. I do how you folks get a handle on it before it ruins the site.

Anybody ever run barefoot (on pavement)? I did it in college (5 years ago) a lot on the grass playing soccer and rugby. I started running on pavement (with shoes) afterward and was killed by knee aches and achilles tendon problems. I connected the injuries to the pavement, not the shoes. Now I hear that maybe millions of years of evolution actually makes humans really good at running without shoes, so I decided to give it a go unshod. Went almost a mile today on a pavement track, and it was a bizarre experience. The motions and muscle movements were all completely different. But I liked it. My feet and legs are very strong so I didn't have any problems with weak feet. It was just different motions. Anybody else?

What I want to do is keep score with my coin soccer game. I will have 2 metal contacts in the goals that when a coin goes through it will break contact and send a signal to the Arduino having the contacts allways HIGH and then when its LOW, it changes an 7 segment LED. I am very new to programming and the C language. I think I can write the whole IF and ELSE statements but I don't know how to make the LED display change. I need the LED display to change after getting the signal from my Arduino by going up one number. It is a single 7 segment display. Can someone help me with the code for that? Thanks in advance.

Hello, I have 2 separate 12 volt lighting systems in the yard. One is a low-voltage garden lighting that illuminates paths, trees, and a hot tub shelter. The other is a security lighting system, a 12V system that lights 6 each 900 lumen flood lights powered by solar panels and batteries. Other than shine a flood light from the landscape light system at the security system light sensor, is there a relay I can install that prevents the security lights from powering on until the landscape lights turn off? I guess I am thinking of the redneck version of the relay that puts generators into play when the power goes out. I want my yard to be friendly while the landscaping lights are on, but we dont need a soccer pitch until the guests go home. Kind of like a rock concert.

I am new to this web site and I do like what I have read so far. I am an test engineer and I am trying to come up with a way to get 15 psi in a glass bottle with it being 98% full with water. also this is to test the cap so the cap wust not be tampered with. the way I am doing it now is to drill a 1/2" hole into the body of the glass bottle and use a rubber stopper with an air line in the center of it and apply the correct amount of presure. but when I drill the half inch whole in the glass, the glass will brak about half the time or will crack and split under presure. I thought of drilling a smaller hole and using a air needle like one would use for soccer balls or basket ballls. Does any one have any suggestions. Test professor

School sucks right now, have an A,B,C,& D, I'm stressed about that. But I come home today and I check my bank online and see that someone's used my debit card # to purchase $300 worth of soccer jerseys (WTF? SRSLY). SO I immediately call the bank (india) and tell them, guess what, since it's only pending they can't do anything, even though I alerted them, I have to wait until the money is stolen out of my account to file a fraud dispute, ridiculous. At least, I limit my liability to $50 by reporting it within two days (per FTC.gov), but it's a damned ass backward way to do it. BTW the banks solution, call the merchant,sigh, well their 800 number rang and rang, the other contact number went to voice mail, so they got a long detailed message. And of course, I cancelled my card, not at the banks suggestion. I has bad feeling about what a PITA this is going to turn into...

I have been playing with sparklers for ages now the latest experiment was to do several layers of aluminum foil and duct tape around two packets of sparklers and putting some arrow fletchs on them... the last one we tried went across three paddocks and nearly took out a shetland pony :-( we measured it the next day and it came up to 150 metres. However i have allways been looking for explosions... sidetracking slightly here but i actually got an explosion my bro welded up a pyramid the size of a soccer ball i filled it with sparkler dust dad wasnt very happy about the huge hole it left in our roof when it exploded and sent 6ml plate in the air for over 10 seconds that was the dummest thing ive done so im looking to down scale slightly with less shrapnel. So in conclusion Im after a recipe using roughly $30 worth of sparklers to explode keeping in mind that i live in Aus so some matierals are harder to come by. thanks everybody any feedback is supported so keep the comments flowing :-)

While some teens use their summers to learn sailing, archery or soccer, Brandon Meadows attends Summer Explosives Camp in Missouri to learn how to use dynamite."Some people like baseball, others like math -- I just like to set off bombs," he said. "I figure here, learning how to do it properly is better than messing around with it at home, right?"Meadows is one of 20 teenage campers enrolled in a weeklong explosion camp in the Missouri Ozarks. At the camp, high school students from as far away as Egypt and Hawaii shoot dynamite, TNT and plastic explosives.The camp's leader, Paul Worsey, a professor at the University of Missouri, Rolla, uses the camp as a way to attract new recruits into the unglamorous field of mine engineering. He recruits students to help carry on the industry, which is facing a serious personnel shortage."It's critically important," Worsey said. "These are our workers to sustain this industry going forward."So far, the camp is working. Meadows has already enrolled in the explosives engineering program at the University of Missouri at Rolla for next fall. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=11226636
