Well given our name, you could be mistaken that we do sports related things but to be quite honest we probably fare better at video game versions of athletics and doing what we do best in our spare time, tinkering with technology!
So how do you end up being asked by the Gadget Show on Channel 5 to do something for them on the topic of football and referee-less games using smart design?
