There has been a lot of interest in Tornelo around Australia and certainly the recent interschool event at Tucker Rd Primary was no exception.

To get players more involved in the tournament we purchased a LaunchPad Kiosk to hold the iPad securely so players were able to add results, check scores and monitor rating changes during theĀ  event.

The best example of how Tornelo benefits players was about 2 minutes after one of the players won his game (on board 1) he received a phone call from his dad, congratulating him on the win. His dad had been following the results online and knew the moment an important victory was won… not quite the same as being in the room, but the next best thing.

Spr0cket (who created the LaunchPad hardware) were so interested when we told them what we were doing that they came to watch, subsequently adding a blog post to their website.

Here are some photos of the day.
