We have used a Raspberry Pi to compile RTEMS (rtems.org) to target the space hardened SPARC V7 ERC32 as well as gdb including a simulator. The Raspberry Pi does this and runs the tests on a simulator at approximately the same performance level as a mid-90s Sun workstation. It is a respectable CPU and great for many "ordinary" computer tasks.

Are the specifications for communication protocol over the JTAG port open? Will projects like OpenOCD (http://openocd.sourceforge.net/) have enough information to support this?
Sure they might have used a standard connector. But the devil is in the details.
Assume people eat out, mention a restaurant in a tweet, and complain of being sick within 72 hours. I can see how over enough tweets -- just like enough searches -- you can make this work.
As the organization administrator for the RTEMS Project (http://www.rtems.org), I am honored to be participating again and can't wait to see what students propose."

Hmmm... and it is working for them to beat Amazon.
What does the Winklevii having USD11M in bitcoins say?
Isn't productivity from a dead guy zero. Why would anyone hire a dead guy?
All I can think of is a new movie called Weekend at Steve's.
Your scoreboard looks interesting and if you could get information in front of the 1000s of youth soccer leagues, it has potential. I have no proof of this but suspect that the kickstarter audience is (as a broad and biased sweep) NOT the athletic type and most are not the parents of 4-13 year old soccer players. This looks like a product that needs word of mouth in the RIGHT community.
Have you all taken it out to soccer fields and shown it in action?
Have you tried to get the attention of an organization like http://www.usyouthsoccer.org/ and get it featured in a review or article in whatever news outlet they have?
Have you talked with local high school coaches about this and offered them loaners?
Once you get a little local exposure at the soccer field, call the newspapers and television stations and see if they will feature a story on this. A local feel good story might find you other marketing outlets or an angel backer.
DISCLAIMER: I am a backer of Bartendro on kickstarter. Others have mentioned being backers of nerdy board or computer games. Maybe kickstarter isn't the best place to hawk a sports related product.
If only this were a standard.
Look at the people at http://www.code.org/quotes. Some are politicians but many are from the computing industry. Quit whining and actually look.
A friend of mine who ran a TV repair business saw the writing on the wall when he had to start paying upwards of USD5K a year to a single manufacturer to get manuals. And the parts became entire modules with higher costs. He focused on higher end systems since anything cheap enough isn't worth the cost to repair. Eventually he gave up and went to work for LG.
My son is studying economics this semester and his textbook mentions that price controls were in effect at the time which had some unintended consequences. There is a section in the wikipedia article on how changes in currency value led to periodic jumps in the price OPEC wanted to keep oil at the same income to them as a supplier. Also this price control apparently impacted existing oil fields and not new ones. It became more profitable to quit using old fields and drill new ones to avoid the price controls.
I am all in favor of efficiency and lower resource consumption but there were many external factors impacting the 1970s oil market.
