    I'm designing a new game that involves numerous players kicking a ball at a three-dimensional target. An electronic automated scorekeeper is needed. This electronic automated scorekeeper needs the ability to understand when the ball (not a foot or other body part) contacts the target. When the ball contacts the target the scorekeeper should increases the score. The target will be stepped on and abused in the course of the game. The target must be low-profile or soft so that it does not injure a player when they step on it. Currently the target is made out of plastic and foam but other materials are considered. The ball may be leather, rubber, synthetic or comparable material. Thanks!

    Well... I hope you figure out how to make that.

    maybe a thin magnetic film in the target and also covering the ball. This way the magnetic attraction is counted and not just an impact. The details of how to do that are a mystery to me but there are electrical experts on the forum and computer geniuses as well that can likely take that a step further. Just be sure not to give out too much detail without patenting the idea first. would suck for you to go through all the trouble only to have someone else steal your idea and make a fortune.

    Do what all sports leagues do, slow motion instant replay to gauge whether points were missed. However it would be a waste of time to ask anyone connected with FIFA,

    Insert a well made electronic signaling device inside the ball. Then set up a device to be activated when that device enters into the net.

    The "magnetic" coveing for the target and ball is a great idea; even so, I'm not sure what "ball covering" will withstand the abuse a soccer ball endures.

    Regarding the signaling device in the net, thanks for the insights but: the ball strikes a target or object and does not "pass through" a net or similar boundary.

    The same ball covering that's on the soccer ball, now.

    I like your idea. It solves the problem of mistakenly counting a foots impact against the target. I don't know anything about magnetic film. Do you know how it might be applied to the ball? Or, how well it may hold up during a soccer game?
    Thanks!

    I'm not real sure, But have you ever seen tires that are made to be driven on ice. They have metal studs in them. It actually looks like nails in the tires. maybe something like that.



    Or maybe you can find a way to infuse iron filings into the rubber that coats the outside of the ball. Kinda like they did in Iceland with silicum carbide to create strong tires for snow. Green Diamond Tire
