2014-11-02 (Su) Arduino Laser Tag

I start my new job today!

Enough background.

One of the big problems with the previous attempt at laser tag was creating a suitable vest. It had to be versatile enough to fit anyone, easy to wear, and comfortable. These could all be found on expensive tactical vests. After a lot of meditation and consideration a backpack was decided upon but the envelope would be cut away leaving only the padded back material and straps. The components would be arranged on a stiff platform and a layer of polycarbonate suspended over it.

To do:
  • Order necessary parts
  • Build two working taggers
  • Update team colors with NeoPixels
