#1936: ParkHark

I was inspired to create today’s invention by reading this story in New Scientist.

Imagine if a sportsground had microphones arrayed around the playing area. These detect the volume of sound from different sections of the crowd.

It would then be possible to

a) Replay on big screens automatically parts of the action which had just caused a crescendo

b) Extract those parts of the action which had excited the home end more than the away end and play those bits to the home fans watching on mobile devices

c) Compare the crowd’s integrated excitement level from game to game.
