PITTSBURGH, Aug. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- It's not uncommon for players, coaches and spectators to disagree with the calls officials make at sporting events. However, thanks to the creative thinking of an inventor from Oklahoma City, OK, there will no longer be reason to second guess officials at basketball games.
He developed the patent pending TIME'S UP TIMERS!!! specifically to ensure more accurate and fair basketball officiating. As such, it alerts officials when designated time periods expire, eliminating the risk of human error when determining various team and player violations. Thus, it reduces the number of challenged calls, saving time and effort. This extremely reliable system is also practical and easy to operate. In addition, it is convenient, effective and affordably priced.
The inventor's personal experience as a basketball player, coach and fan inspired the idea. "While watching the game, I realized there is always a chance for human error with the five-second rule when teams are inbounding the ball and trying to move it past midcourt," he said. "This idea will allow officials to make more accurate timing calls and improve the management of game time."
The original design was submitted to the Austin office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
