Airsoft Target Range: Arduino + ioBridge [Demo]

http://www.polymythic.com/2009/01/arduinoiobridge-airsoft-target-range/ A DIY project to create an indoor Airsoft target range using an Arduino and ioBridge module. I send Airsoft target facing commands using my iPod Touch.

  1. Great ideas there. …
    Great ideas there. The scoring system has been talked about a lot. Another option is to have a swinging target that when shot would swing the target to click a button an increment a counter. The only downside is you couldn’t use turning targets as I had in this video. Shoot me a link to a video if you do a system!

  2. @neills I just …
    @neills I just posted a very similar idea. I hadn’t bothered to look at the comments before postings my idea. But yea, my thought was also a piezo.

  3. NICE! You have …
    NICE! You have given me some ideas. It might be fun to see if I can use an Arduino to detect hits from an airsoft gun. Maybe use soup cans as targets and piezo elements to pick up the vibrations from the cans. Then use the arduino to keep track of your hits and display them on an LCD or 7 segment display. You could use different sized cans for different point values. Coffee can gives the fewest points. Tomato paste can gives the most points.

  4. @joshgates81 iTouch …
    @joshgates81 iTouch -$175 (again, you can use ANY browser). iobridge – $120, servos – $20, Servo Smartboard %25, arduino – $30. You can now use Serial Smartboard ($30) rather than PWM output to communicate. So, that is full automated rig. If you wanted to have a friend control manually from web page, or you want to write code in your webpage, you can remove the arduino and serial smartboard. Good luck!

  5. Get a larger …
    Get a larger pressure tab and put it on the bullseye on the back so everytime you hit the bullseye on any of the targets, an LED or group of LEDS light up. Sounds good to me! 🙂 Then have your servant or girlfriend take tallys! Perfect weekend. 🙂

  6. @robinsonpayton1 …
    @robinsonpayton1 Well, its all posted on my site. I have confidence you can do way better than I can! There has been a challenge to see a scoring system (hint, hint)

  7. Next step would be …
    Next step would be to add a plate to the back and stick a piezo on it so that when you hit the target it would make a “DING” or something.

  8. Need to add force …
    Need to add force sensor to each target and hit/miss counter to system. Add more targets, put them all over your garage, invite your drunken friends over and rain upon paper! lol.

  9. The interface is …
    The interface is just a standard webpage, so I would think there would be no problem whatsoever. Nothing fancy about it.

  10. that’s kick ass, …
    that’s kick ass, best target i saw. wish i could make one but i don’t have the stuff to make it

  11. You think i could …
    You think i could use my phone…. LG DARE to control it…. don’t know how you did it but maybe it would work?

  12. wow, thats amazing, …
    wow, thats amazing, and its actually very useful. I like how you can change the speed of the targets so you can really work on your reaction time.
