These resources are for the Arduino-Based Laser Tag Game tutorial series I wrote.
I had put together an electronics kit for this project, but I no longer offer it for sale. Here is the original parts list:
- One 5mm Red LED
- One 5mm Infrared LED
- One TSOP2138YA Infrared Sensor Module
- One 100 Ohm Resistor
- One 82 Ohm Resistor
- One 10k Ohm Resistor
- One Momentary Pushbutton (panel mount)
- One 0.1uF Capacitor
- One Piezo Element
- One Small Solderable Perf Board.
- One 20mm Magnifying Lens
I wanted to put a lot more things here but I just haven’t had the time. In the meanwhile, here are some links.
