We present a novel concept for an audience voting
system for judged sports events. It is based on wireless
wearable motion sensors utilizing the natural
behaviour ofsports spectators - clapping and cheering.
This paper describes initial results from a user study
that guided our design process. We further present two
preliminary prototypes focusing on hardware and
design feasibility respectively. Results confirm our
assumption that the system does not provide objective
results, but has the potential to increase the spectator
experience by giving audience members the feeling of
being part of the voting process.
