Building a massive cricket scoreboard on a shoestring budget with a Raspberry Pi

A bunch of amateur hackers from Gloucestershire have created a digital scoreboard for their cricket club using a Raspberry Pi. The Pi acts as the master controller for an Arduino which controls the 7-segment displays. The interface is then accessed via a tablet or laptop and the scores updated remotely. It’s a lovely project, especially considering the group didn’t have any electronics knowledge or experience and they had to rely on tutorials and resources on the Internet to put it together. You can read lots more, including how to do it yourself, on their blog.

Thanks to Hackaday for spotting this one.
