MLB Mission Control, A Baseball Control Panel Inspired by NASA

MLB Mission Control

The “MLB Mission Control” project by New York-based creative group BREAKFAST is an operational Major League Baseball control panel inspired by the NASA space program. Instead of viewing events and information dealing with space flight, the BREAKFAST team can kick back and watch real-time stats from the world of baseball.

Inspired from the design and components of control rooms in the early days of space flight, we created an 18-foot-long machine that serves up everything from live feeds from every ballpark to real-time wind speeds across every field. The satisfying click of the 30+ toggle switches will pull up team, stadium, league, and social data.

Mission Control lives in the MLB Fan Cave located at 4th Street and Broadway in Manhattan.

While the hardware side wasn’t the easiest nut to crack, developing over 10 different APIs and 6 languages wasn’t exactly a walk in the park.
