I am interested in using the light sensor and led layout of the Blinky POV project to make a flashlight (laser) tag device. The unit would start out with a “back and forth” (cylon) led pattern. But when the light sensor gets a direct hit from another player’s flashlight, the lights all light up. (or blink in unison) When the player gets hit he/she has to sit out until the game restarts.
At that point they would just press the button and the cylon pattern starts again.
Is this project possible with the current design?
How would I reprogram the microchip to execute this type of game?
Are there other parts that would be necessary?
I’m new to electronics and programming but I am wanting to learn how to do both and I thought this project would be a good way to get my feet wet.
