==== Description: ====
This project aims at developing a challenge game for event such as Telethon
or inter-village games.
Each village or neighborhood is a team.
A team is composed of bikers and sponsors.
Sponsors pay for bikers to pedal.
At the end of the event, the winner is the team that covered the longest
distance, and the money earned for the sponsors is to the benefit of the
event, e.g. Telethon.

Tools developped for this project are:
- a electronic device with capters that is plugged on home-trainer bicycles
(we use home made bicycle counters in order to be able to connect them to a
computer for only a few euros)
- a software to run on the capter device (we use a Arduino board to fetch the
capters data and send it to a computer thru the serial/USB link)
- a software to handle information received from the capter device and
display it to event's participant (on a giant video projector screen) and to
control the game mechanisms, such as managing teams, bikers and sponsors,
starting counters, and so on.

For now, the prototype is composed of a capter device pour 10 bikes (10
capters) controled by an C-like program running on a Arduino. The software
interface is written in Ruby/Gtk
