electronic numeric display board for volleyball Answered
I have searched the Internet hard for a reasonably priced electronic numeric display board to no avail. I am interested in constructing a remote control scoreboard for volleyball similar to basketball scoreboards deployed in high schools. For many years I have played and continue to play a LOT of drop in volleyball at various local Rec Centers. It would be great to be able to keep track of the score with a remote control device in your pocket while playing the game.
Alternatively please let me know of any high schools being torn down which could be an opportunity to save a basketball scoreboard that would otherwise be relegated to a land fill site.
When you think about the utility of such a device, why hasn't this project been done before? Maybe it has and if you have any info then PLEASE forward. I would seriously entertain any posted price for such a completed device if it exists as the hero factor is huge. The advantage of building it yourself is that you are in a position to manufacture duplicates for others and you become the repair man.
The bigger the display board, the better. I know they exist but are mostly cost prohibitive. At this point I am prepared to start with a small display for the prototype in order to get this project started since I am very enthused.
