It was desired to have a sports related exhibit that had
no biases related to the sex of the participants. It was
also desired to gather and present the statistics of participants,
segregated by sex. Reaction time was chosen as the subject.
The exhibit was controlled by custom programmed microprocessors.
A close and private feel to the exhibit was afforded by
the use of small, state of the art LCD displays (now common
to laptop computers). Statistics were gathered and presented
for the last 25 participants. Statistics over the long
run were available to an external computer link for research
carried out in conjunction with a local university.
