bitOlympics - Football/Soccer v2

#bitOlympics: Football/Soccer
The worlds favourite sport! The earliest known soccer-like game was even recorded already in ancient Greece. The sport has most likely been re-invented a few times since then - BUT now it is time to bring it to the next level in the bitOlympics!

Design Challenge: Take any aspect of the game soccer and remix it. For example you can use littleBits to trigger things when goals are scored, you can even have littleBits modules play the game and score the goals!

Tips: We recommend using the Premium or Deluxe kit and combining it with the cloudBit as a way to create wireless alert systems.

  • We recommend using moving bits to score goals. Such as a DC motor, servo motor, or even a fan.
  • We recommend lots of outputs to create buzz/celebration or other events when a goal is scored. LEDs, buzzers, motors etc. If you have a CloudBit or a Smart Home Kit at hand we recommend exploring the possibility of connecting the game to the online world!

To complete the challenge take a video of you playing your game and explaining how you made it. The video should last at least 15 seconds.

Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball. It is played by 250 million players in over 200 countries, making it the world’s most popular sport. The game is played on a rectangular field with a goal at each end. The object of the game is to score by getting the ball into the opposing goal.

A few examples of the sport:
