Eye on the Hog is a system that provides
impartial hog-line judging for the sport of curling. It uses innovative
technology to detect a magnetic strip frozen into the ice at the hog line
and a bare hand touching the handle. Circuitry in the handle turns
on green lights after a valid release or flashes red lights if a violation
system is activated when the rock is tilted for cleaning. Circuitry
turns off when not in use to extend
the battery life to over 150 games.
Operation of the touch sensor is confirmed by green lights that
flash when the handle is not touched. Lights are off during delivery
to prevent distraction.
