This was an internal Project for the social and advertising angency Elbkind.
The soccer table in the elbkind office Hamburg is like every other soccer table on the planet. I wanted to change that and bring a digital experience to the previous analog-only game.
To enhance the analog experience with a digital component, I upgraded the existing soccer table with light barrier sensors, a wifi enabled microprocessor and a webservice based on NodeJS which processed the data.
After the basic functionality (showing realtime scores on a seperate screen) were implemented, I also created user profiles & lobbies, tracked 1v1 and 2v2 matches, added a league system and set up a twitter bot to broadcast results to the world.
