Laser tag for the people - New Project Light Attack
Announcing a new project called Light Attack.
This project is all about producing an open source fun combat simulation, similar to paintball but with Infra Red light instead of painful paint pellets.
This is the working prototype:
The idea is to provide a hardware and software platform for a variety of uses where you need to "fire" and "receive" IR signals. The first use is to create an IR version of Paintball, the second use is to use it with R/C cars and tanks to allow for R/C combat.
Currently Light Attack is based around the Arduino with Open Sourced C code available and published schematics.
