2014-11-17 (M) Arduino Laser Tag

A design was created for the screen holder which was no more than a clear plastic cover on the tagger enclosure. A window will be created by spray painting the panel except for the screen area which will be masked off with tape. This adds complication since the the RJ11 phone connector cannot be attached using a keystone (modular) part. Glare resistant acrylic sheeting was purchased to act as the enclosure cover. A switch box cover with two RJ11 sockets was purchased and the sockets were unfastened from the faceplate.

The PVC tagger enclosure had tape applied to the edges to protect it from marking. The outline of the enclosure was traced on to the acrylic sheet. Five outlines were traced but only two will be cut immediately. The mounting holes for the enclosure were also marked by looking through the plastic. Holes were marked for mounting the phone socket but they will likely be glued in place.

Marking unnecessary holes

To do:
  • Draft schematics
  • Break down tasks further
  • Create vest mount for controller, battery, and terminal strip
  • Build another test unit
  • Make instructions for all parts
