2014-11-25 (Tu) Arduino Laser Tag

The orange enclosure was measured for drilling on the bottom. The first enclosure had holes at the front and back but the orange has a single hole which will make it the front or barrel end. A 1/2" (12mm) hole was drilled for the switch and a 5/16" hole was drilled for the handle. After the holes were drilled it became apparent they were drilled in the wrong positions.  New holes were drilled with the correct orientation.

The first incorrect hole

To precisely arrange the four holes for the anti-rotation pegs on the handle the metal portion of the tape dispenser was placed on the enclosure facing the same direction as the handle and the holes were marked with a permanent marker. The holes were drilled to 7/32" (7mm). The handle fit well and the switch was operable.

Bolt for handle and switch

To do:
  • Draft schematics
  • Break down tasks into more detail
  • Build vest mounts
  • Build another tagger with a long gray barrel
  • Make instructions for all parts
