Re: Some other hit sensor alternatives you might consider

That's very interesting info. This could be key to making it able to score hits/misses with some accuracy. Can you explain how the microswitch was attached to the system? It's also interesting that it ignores hits in the first 0.75 seconds. My thinking was that human reaction time isn't fast enough ...

Store is live.

We finally got a small online store system up. The first two items in the store are our chainsaw sword kit, and vacuum chamber kit. More things will be coming as we make improvements.

To visit the store, simply go to http://www.hightechdiy.com/store

Target - Generation 1 - Revision 6

This revision adds a "mode" variable. In mode 0, it randomly pops up and down. In mode 1, it activates when a switch+resistor is closed on pin 9 (then it pops up for maxTarget, and waits down for maxWait, before being able to be triggered again). /* Controls Ranger pop-up target system By ...

Re: Ten steps to a sound-activated arduino

Here's the code I was using (with a 140K resistor). /* This code gives the number of times that the output has been triggered by desired level of input. Keeping the triggerNumber to 182 gives some false triggers, but in a quiet environment, it should be a relatively safe number. Setting triggerNumbe...

Re: Ten steps to a sound-activated arduino

I'm getting an error:

[quote]sketch_jul17a.cpp: In function 'void setup()':
sketch_jul17a:21: error: 'class SerialLCD' has no member named 'backlight'[quote]

When I comment that line out, it works fine, and the backlight is on. What version of the libraries were you using?

Mechanical feature requests

We've been contacted by a number of amateur and professional shooters and training centers regarding the Ranger. Some have been happy with it as-is, others would prefer certain improvements, and some require added features for it to be useful to them. Post any ideas here. Some features we're already...

Re: Target - Generation 1 - Software Revision 5

You also need these two libraries, which you unzip into your "Arduino-0022\Libraries" folder. (Yes, they will create subdirectories when you do that.)

Target - Generation 1 - Software Revision 5

This is the 5th revision of the software for the pop-up target. Since v0.4 we've been using the Grove shield for the Arduino to make connections simpler. /* Controls Ranger pop-up target system By Paladin Tech Works - http://www.HighTechDIY.com Version 0.4 Licensed under Creative Commons Attribution...
