LED Roller Derby Scoreboard
A do-it-yourself LED Roller Derby scoreboard. It's visible in full sunlight, doesn't use a computer at all, and can be easily operated by an 8-year-old.
If you're looking for a software scoreboard (using a projector) this list of free derby scoreboard software will help.
This scoreboard is operated with a Nintendo controller, and runs on an XBox 360 power supply. The rest of the parts need to be ordered from various sources online. The total should come out to around $200, with plenty of options for upgrades.
It will take about 6 weeks of work, and requires basic electronics understanding and elementary soldering skills. I provide updated firmware, so unless you feel like modifying the MIT-licensed source code, you don't need to do any programming.
- Discussion Group for help from others who've built or are building one.
- Google Drive Folder with schematics, documentation, and firmware releases.

I'm Neale Pickett, also known as "Q" in the Derby world. Feel free to email me, but the group would be more appropriate for email relating to this scoreboard.
I've done a lot of other derby stuff that you may be interested in.
