The internal video sensor inside the XP Brain continually scans the 4 channels used in Drone Clan Wars. It records the times for each team in an array. It displays the time on the board for 10 seconds in the color of the team.
#2 Battle Timer
There are two parts. First there is the Android program using MIT's AI Inventor. Two buttons: Start and Stop. The app send a message to the XP Brain via Bluetooth to start the Battle. Clocks runs down for 8 minutes.
