Seventy 7’s Felip Ivanovski’s baby is his Versus Scoreboard. A former professional phys. ed. instructor, he thought it would be nice to have a counter made of more than just wood. The device features 2 10W speakers, a mic, a countdown timer, buzzer, period tracker, and can be customized with a faceplate of the sponsor’s name. Its LED settings will work both indoors and out, and its RF remote can apparently work through walls. We dig that it can jeer or applaud and can be taught team specific team chants. The Scoreboard can double as a boom box with MP3 playback.Running on battery or AC power, contact Seventy 7 for further info and price.
