Adam from raisinggeeks.com (a great site to check out) designed and built a completely awesome photo finish instant reply as part of his inventing merit badge.  A big thanks to Adam and his dad for putting this on YouTube and their killer blog.

Problem: “Parents have trouble seeing the finish line because Cub Scouts are sitting around it and blocking the view”

This system was not used for judging or scoring, only for keeping the crowd excited at the event.
