2017-06-04 (Su) Pi0 Laser Tag PiTagErrUs

Blue and red wires were soldered to all the outputs which would reside in the front of the tagger. Two LEDs for the flashlight, one red LED for the flash simulator, one red laser module, and one infrared LED.

Outputs with wires

The wires were all soldered to a small prototyping circuit board so they could be linked to the main board later. This should have been done with a connector or the components could have simply been given long wires. It will be easy enough to remedy this in the next build.

Outputs soldered to a test board

Mounting the laser module was done with glue. Ideally, this would have used a special clip after being inserted into a thin faceplate but glue worked well enough.

Adding glue to the laser emitter

No infrared receiver was attached to the front of the tagger but everything else was connected to give an idea of what the tagger will look like from the front.
