The SPARQ XLR8 Digital Timing System used a wireless handheld timer with an LCD screen to display timing information. Digital cones used an infrared beam to detect the athletes as they negotiated an agility course or ran the 40 yard dash. The system was introduced in 2006 and was discontinued a couple years later.
Nike has a relationship with SPARQ and the SPARQ Challenge.
