Looking to create ‘the next big thing’? Look no further than TI's Maker and DIY community! Launch your design with TI's low-cost, community-supported development platforms. Begin rapid prototyping applications in minutes with our microcontroller-based LaunchPad kits, Sitara™-processor-powered BeagleBoards and SimpleLink™ wireless connectivity SensorTags.
The countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area 2016 has begun and we are super excited to showcase the Texas Instruments (TI) LaunchPad™ Development ecosystem at the TI booth! To make things more exciting, we will be co-located and adjacent to the BeagleBoard.org booth on the Maker Faire show floor in Zone 2!
To showcase how well the TI LaunchPad ecosystem and BeagleBone boards can work together, we co-developed an Internet-connected basketball arcade game. You may remember the IoB (Internet of Basketball) system we created from a two-part blog series we posted a few months ago. However, the system has gone through several iterations to incorporate BeagleBone Black. In its current implementation, we have a hybrid local/external cloud-based system.
Here’s a high-level block diagram:
As you can see, we have a lot of TI components working together to create a complete Internet-connected basketball arcade game.

We can’t wait to see everyone at Maker Faire! We’ll have the IoB demo at the booth and will be giving out prizes and TI and BeagleBoard.org swag to the top-scoring players!
