Foosball Pro Project

New project, now for something completely different … as I like: D

The table football, as the arcade and pinball were part of my childhood, adolescence and continue to be part of my life. After all who doesn’t like a good game of table football?


It seems complicated to start modernizing this, but in my opinion, there is always room for an upgrade. Hence the idea to add to the traditional table football an LCD display that shows the score, goals animations and even promotional videos when no one is playing.

The system was developed entirely on Android and Arduino. An app was made for the android system that monitors currency inflows, marking goals and then generates the corresponding animations.
The entire development of the project software was once again, done by Overflow Interactive, which also developed the RiftCycles.

When a goal is scored, besides and animation in the LCD an animation is also generated on the inner side leds, with the corresponding color of the team who scored. Ex: a goal from Benfica (red outfit) – Leds Red. A goal from Sporting (green outfit) – Leds Green.
This concept of table football with lighting, is not exactly new, but to make it a bit more challenging, I´ve created a controller board for these led animations.


I leave you with the photos and the video of the final product and a special thanks to OOZ Labs for the precious help.
