DIY Live NBA Scoreboard: Just in Time for the, Uh, Lockout.
Here’s a fun mod for basketball fans that’s just perfect for the upcoming 2011-2012 NBA season. If there will be one. Inspired by the real-time score updates he saw in casinos in Las Vegas, Kianoosh decided to make one for himself, using an actual scoreboard no less.

NetMix Player Takes the Grunts Out of Wimbledon

NetMix Player Takes the Grunts Out of Wimbledon
I happen to think watching tennis is right up there with watching golf and watching paint dry. The sports might be fun to play, but watching them on TV leaves me in a bored stupor. I also don’t care for watching soccer on TV, but I do recall when the World Cup was going on all those fans who brought out those noisy Vuvuzela horns.

Replay XD1080 Action Cam Ready to Capture Whatever You Do
Extreme and action sports are very cool and I like some of the activities that fall into the category. I am not into skateboarding because I would crack off my coccyx in about 2 seconds. I do, however, get into motorsports like road courses and autocross though.

Sports Trading Cards Get Video Screens
When I was a kid, I collected my share of baseball cards. I was particularly fond of a line of cards called Sportflics. These cards were made of cardboard like all cards, but when you moved them back and forth, the image on the card would change.

All of the people out there that like to do crazy sports or extreme sports and want to be able to record their antics in a first person view need some sort of camcorder. The best type of camera is something small and rugged that can survive the inevitable drop or crash.

Clear29 LED Skateboards Light Up the Night
Now I’ll start out by saying that if I even tried to skateboard during the daytime, I’d probably end up with a bloody lip and a concussion within 10 minutes, so the idea of skateboarding in the dark is completely off-limits for me.

NFL Uses Under Armour E39 High-Tech Shirts for Scouting Combine
Football is a rough sport and players get hurt all the time from the forces and impacts that are generated in the game. There have been some calls for new safety gear that will monitor the force of hits and strikes.

Callaway upro MX Golf GPS Helps You Find the Pin, But Won’t Help With Your Slice
I am about as far from a golfer as I can be. I play miniature golf on occasion and can’t even win at that. A trip to a real course for me would be an all day cursing match.

Skizee Lets You Ski Without a Mountain

Skizee Lets You Ski Without a Mountain
Ever tried skiing in the Midwest?  Having lived nearly my entire life in Indiana, I’ve not found any places nearby fit for skiing. Sure, there are some decent hills here and there, but certainly nowhere worthy of finding a ski lift.

Keeping up with a running schedule can be taxing. If you don’t have a calendar you mark off to keep up with your running plan, it’s easy for a week or two to pass with you forgetting about that New Year’s resolution you started.

Year-Round Sled is Perfect for Warm Weather
I live in Texas where it’s not just hot in the summer, its hawt. The upside is that in the winter if we get below freezing more than a few weeks it’s a bad winter. That said, we rarely get snow so we don’t get to make snowmen or throw snowballs each year and sledding is unheard of around here.

Statsheet Automated Sports Reports: Blogger 2.0
Until I came across the StatSheet Network, I thought that robots were the only man-made automatons that are taking over human jobs. But just last week,  a network of websites with no human writers was launched.

Earl, the Robotic Bowler

Earl, the Robotic Bowler
I actually was pretty decent bowler when I was a kid, but on the rare occasion that I go bowling these days, I usually get a score that I’d rather have for my golf game.
